NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 14 January 1918

Roll of Honour. It is with deep regret we announce the death of Lance Corporal Albert Edward Ennis Guppy of the London Regiment which took place on 23 November last during the fighting in Palestine. The deceased gallant soldier was formerly employed by Mr Smith, aerated water manufacturer, and joined up over 2 years ago in the Royal Army Medical Corps. He was in Dublin during the rebellion and later transferred to the London Regiment, with whom he proceeded to France in June 1916, he afterwards served in Salonika and later took part in the fighting in Palestine leading up to the capture of Jerusalem. Letters were received in Jersey from the Corporal as late as Friday last so that the shock the parents received yesterday when they received the official notification of his death in action can be imagined. The late soldier, who was 32, was the third son of Mr & Mrs J G Guppy of St Johns Road, he was a widower and leaves two children. We tender the bereaved our heartfelt sympathy.
