Roll of Honour. Some time ago we announced that Bernard Jordan of the Jersey Company Royal Irish Rifles, eldest son of Mr & Mrs J Jordan of 6 Tunnel Street, had been reported missing since 16 August 1917 and we now learn with deep regret that the gallant young soldier is now presumed to have been killed on the above date near Ypres. Bernie Jordan, as he was more generally known, volunteered in 1915, he being then about 18. He was a former member of the 1st Jersey St Simons Troop of Boy Scouts and was employed at Maison Rickett. He proceeded with the Jersey Company to France and being wounded was sent to Blighty for a time, but later returned to the Front as a machine gunner and whilst engaged in his duties in the front line met his death. We tender the parents and other relatives our heartfelt condolences in their sorrow.
