NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Thursday 18 October 1917

Roll of Honour. As so often in the case with Naval losses amongst the killed on the ill-fated HMS Champagne was a Jersey lad, First Class Boy Wilfred Redvers Journeaux. This gallant young lad, who was only 17, had already been on a cruiser which was torpedoed but he has now been called upon to make the supreme sacrifice. He was the son of Rifleman W Journeaux of the Royal Irish Rifles and Mrs Journeaux and the grandson of Mr J MacDonald of Cheapside. The relatives have our sincere sympathy in their sorrow.
