NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Wednesday 16 October 1918

Roll of Honour. Amongst those who lost their lives in the Otranto-Kashmir collision was Chief Petty Officer Charles Henry Hacking of this Island. The deceased, who was in his 40th year, was formerly in the P & O Line but at the outbreak of war the ship he was serving on was commandeered by the Government and since that time he had many exciting experiences. On two occasions his ship was torpedoed and he narrowly escaped with his life. He leaves a widow and daughter to mourn his loss, to whom with the other members of the family we tender our heartfelt sympathy.
