NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post
of Tuesday 6 June
The Naval Battle - More Jerseymen Added
to the Roll of Honour. Though we have hesitated for
obvious reasons to publish the names of those supposed
to be serving on the ships sunk during the last naval
battle events have proved that several Jerseymen have
made the supreme sacrifice in addition to those already
announced. Yesterday Mrs C Donoghue of Seaton Place
received official intimation that her brother, Stoker
Percy Kendall of HMS Indefatigable, lost his life when
the vessel was sunk. Stoker Kendall, who was 25, joined
the Royal Navy a few months before the outbreak of war
and previous to this had been in the employ of Mr J
W Orviss and Le Riche Ltd. To the relatives we beg to
tender our sincere condolences in their bereavement.
A total of 26 Jerseymen are believed to have lost their
lives in the Naval Battle of Jutland on 31 May 1916
and on HMS Hampshire which sank on 6 June 1916 after
tricking a mine off the Orkneys.
