NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Friday 20 April 1917

A Tragic Coincidence - Jersey Family's Double Loss. Mr & Mrs Jerrard of Haimance House, Ann Street were greatly shocked yesterday afternoon when they received an official wire stating that their second son, Gunner Charles James Jerrard of the Royal Garrison Artillery, who only enlisted a month ago and who they though was in the best of health, had passed away at Dover. The telegram stated that the Gunner had died at 9.50pm on Wednesday at the Civil Isolation Hospital in Dover from cerebro-spinal meningitis. By a sad coincidence about 14 months ago another son who joined the Royal Navy died suddenly at Gosport a month after enlisting, so that this is the family's second loss under the same tragic circumstances. The late Gunner was 21 and up to the time of enlisting was employed in the office of the Co-Operative Dairy. We feel sure that our readers will join us in tendering the family our sincerest condolence in the bereavement
