NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Thursday 21 December 1916

Roll of Honour. We regret to hear that Mrs Krimmel has received a letter from one of the nurses at the 4th Casualty Clearing Station in France stating that her husband, Private C F W Krimmel of the Royal Lancaster Regiment, has died at the Hospital on the evening of 2 December. He was admitted suffering from severe wounds to the head, face and arm and in a very collapsed condition, though everything possible was done for him he did not rally and was only just able to give his wife's address before passing away. The official notification of death has also been received by the widow, to whom we tender our sincere condolences. The deceased was a time expired soldier and was latterly employed by Mr Perchard the coal merchant. He enlisted and had only been at the Front four weeks when he was wounded.
