NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 23 October 1916

Roll of Honour. We regret to have to record the death of Private Robert (Bob) Jones, eldest son of Mrs Jones of Mont les Vaux, St Aubin, who was killed in action on 16 September. The deceased, who was 21, joined the army soon after the declaration of war and was highly esteemed by all who knew him. We offer our sincere sympathy to the mother in her sad bereavement.
