NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Thursday 30 May 1918

Roll of Honour. We regret to record the fact that another young Jerseyman, John F Le Moignan of the Royal Garrison Artillery, who loyally volunteered in November 1916, has been called upon to make the supreme sacrifice. This soldier, who resided with his parents at Les Grandes Rues, St Marys, served an apprenticeship with and was later employed by Mr J B Le Quesne of St Johns as a carpenter. His parents received a letter a few days ago stating that he was in the best of health so that the shock they received on being handed the following official wire can be imagines "Regret to inform you 61st Casualty Station reports your son, Gunner J F Le Moignan, Siege Battery, died 19 May. Aerial bomb wound, right side fractured". We tender the parents and other members of the family our heartfelt sympathy in their sorrow.
