NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Saturday 28 July 1917

Roll of Honour.Yet another Jerseyman who responded to the appeal for volunteers has been called upon to make the supreme sacrifice for King and Country. We refer to Gunner S Herve, son of Mr & Mrs Herve of Warren Farm, St Peters. The young soldier was only 18 and volunteered for the Royal Garrison Artillery last September. He had been in France for some time and his mother was shocked today to receive a letter from the Major commanding the Battery stating that her son was killed while in action with his gun on the afternoon of Monday last. The Major states "we all feel his loss very deeply as he was always a bright and cheerful worker, always willing and with every promise of developing into a fine and gallant soldier." We tender the relatives our heartfelt sympathy.
