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.
