NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 8 January 1917

Roll of Honour. We regret to chronicle the death which took place this morning at Bangor Military Hospital of pneumonia of Lieutenant Walter Tom (Ben) Le Feuvre of the Royal Engineers. The deceased officer, who was 42, was the son of Mr Walter Le Feuvre of Almorah Crescent and was the husband of Miss Blanche Pirouet. Previous to the outbreak of war he was Borough Electrical Engineer for Bexhill-on-Sea and promptly joined up to serve his country in a more important capacity. He proceeded to France 12 months ago but whilst serving in advanced positions was gassed, this prevented his returning to the fighting line but his knowledge of electrical engineering was taken full use of by the military authorities and he was appointed as one of the instructors at an Engineering Camp. He contracted a chill while on duty and though everything possible was done he passed away this morning. The deceased officer leaves a widow and two children, to whom with the other relatives we tender our sympathy.
