NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Friday 1 November 1918

Roll of Honour. We regret to learn that Mr S Honeycombe has received definite news of the death of his fourth son, Private W Honeycombe of the Hampshire Regiment. The deceased soldier, who before joining up was a tailor at Messrs A de Gruchy & Co, was reported missing some time ago but it was hoped that news might have come through to the effect that he was a prisoner in the hands of the enemy. To the widow and her three little children and to other members of the family we tender our most respectful sympathy in their bereavement.
