NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Thursday 1 November 1917

Roll of Honour. For sometime past grave anxiety has been felt regarding the fate of Private George E Langlois of the Hampshires. This soldier was the third son of Mr P G Langlois of Mayfield, St Lawrence and husband of Miss H Carrel. He was, up to the time of his enlistment in April, in the employ of Au Gagne Petit and had been in France for some time. For some weeks nothing had been heard of him but the family have now received official notification that the soldier was killed in action on 4 October, he being in his 23rd year. To the widow, who resides at 64 Esplanade, and the other members of the family we offer our sincere sympathy. Out of 10 former employees of the firm of Au Gagne Petit who have joined up, Private Langlois makes the sixth who has been called upon to make the supreme sacrifice.
