NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Friday 18 October 1918

Roll of Honour. Yesterday Mr & Mrs Johns of 84 Great Union Road received the sad news of the death in action on 28 September last of their elder son, Private W (Bert) Johns of the Hampshire Regiment. The deceased, who was 25, was formerly employed at Wests Pictures and was one of the original members of the Jersey Contingent. Wounded in 1916 he recovered and went back to the Front only to be gassed last April. His parents were expecting him on leave within the next few days and the news of his death has thus come as an added shock. We tender the family our sincere sympathy.
