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.
