NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post
of Friday 28 April 1916
Roll of Honour. Yet another Jerseyman
has laid down his life on the field of honour. Corporal
Philip Charles Le Moignan of the East Surrey Regiment
was killed in action "somewhere in France"
on Easter Day. The gallant NCO was formerly a Sergeant
in the West Battalion of the RMIJ and enlisted shortly
after the outbreak of war. He was the eldest son of
Mr & Mrs P Le Moignan and a nephew of Mr John Le
Moignan of St Marys. The late Corporal was held in the
highest esteem by the officers and men of his Battalion
and was a most efficient NCO. He was in his 35th year.
To the relatives we beg to offer our sincere condolences
in their sad bereavement.
