Jersey Soldier in Hospital.

We sincerely trust that favourable news will be received shortly.


NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Wednesday 11 September 1918

Roll of Honour. On Saturday last we stated that Mrs J L Le Miere of 7 Wesley Street had received news that her husband, who was serving in the London Regiment, had been wounded on 2 September and was lying dangerously ill at the Australian General Hospital in Rouen. A later message from the Record Office stated that the soldiers right leg had been amputated and we now regret to learn that the wife received a telegram last night informing her that her husband had died of his injuries. The deceased soldier, who was well known, was 35 and had been employed in the firm of Gregory in La Motte Street for 14 years and was held in the highest regard by their patrons. We tender the widow, nee Miss M L Mauger, and the other relatives our sincere sympathy.
