NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 21 January 1918

Roll of Honour. We regret to record the death of another gallant Jerseyman, Petty Officer Philip J M Jordan of the Royal Navy, who lost his life while serving on one of HM destroyers on 12 January. The deceased sailor was an old St Pauls boy and joined the Royal Navy some 24 years ago, he was trained on the famous Boscawen and later served on HMS Raven when this well-known vessel was stationed in local waters. He was the son of Mr R Jordan who was presumed drowned on the SS Caledonia when she was wrecked in local waters and was the nephew and son-in-law of Mr R Jordan of Clarence Terrace. To the widow, who resides in Portsmouth, and other relatives we tender our sincere sympathy.
