Bully-Grenay Communal Cemetery British Extension, near Arras.
ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Saturday 28 July 1917
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.
