NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post
of Tuesday 3 September 1918
Roll of Honour. Though not yet 19 Alfred
Charles Guegan, fourth son of Mr J F Guegan of La Biarderie,
Trinity made the supreme sacrifice on 23 August last.
The sad news was conveyed to the father by the officer
of his son's company who states that the deceased had
made himself liked and respected by all the boys. The
writer adds that Private Guegan was unfortunately killed
by a shell after the Company had reached their objective
in the second advance "it is almost needless to
say what a big loss he is to us. I hope it will be some
little consolation to you to know that he made the supreme
sacrifice willingly in his Country's cause". We
tender the bereaved family our sincere sympathy.
