NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Tuesday 7 May 1918

Roll of Honour. We record with regret the death which took place in action on 1 April of Private J P Guegan, younger son of Mrs Guegan of Melville Cottage, Trinity. The deceased gallant soldier was 24 and joined up early last year in the Hampshire Regiment, being later transferred to the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, and had only been transferred from another Front a few days when he met his death. Previous to joining the colours he was employed by his brother-in-law, Mr J Michel of Longueville. We tender the mother and other members of the family our sincere sympathy in their bereavement.
