NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post
of Wednesday 13 November 1918
Roll of Honour. We regret to learn that
Private J C Le Feuvre of the Gloucestershire Regiment,
who was reported missing on the St Quentin front on
21 March, is now officially reported to have been killed
in action on 23 March. The deceased was formerly employed
in Jersey as a saddler and left the Island to take up
a similar position in Wales. At the outbreak of war
he joined the Glamorgan Yeomanry and became a Sergeant
Saddler and when the need for men became more urgent
transferred to an infantry battalion. By a tragic coincidence
the deceased's brother, a former employee of the Jersey
Times, Private G Le Feuvre of the Wiltshire Regiment,
was killed on the same battlefield 14 months before.
The deceased leaves a widow and two children to whom
we offer our sincere condolences.
