NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Tuesday 1 May 1917

Roll of Honour. Still another name has to be added to the long list of Jerseymen who have given up their lives for their King and Country, that of Lance Corporal Samuel (Sam) Herbert Hutchings of the Machine Gun Corps, who was killed on 10 April last somewhere in France. The deceased, who was in his 34th year, was married and was the third son of Mrs G Hutchings late of Apsley Road. The sad news was conveyed to the widow by Corporal John R Gregor of the deceased's Company, who after explaining in his letter how the death occurred says "the whole of the section sends their deepest sympathy to you and your little son. We all know it will be a great blow to you as it has been a severe one to his mates. He was a very brave man and had he come through all right no doubt he would have been the first man to have been recommended for coolness under heavy shellfire". We offer our sincere sympathy to the widow and other members of the family.
