NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Friday 6 November 1914

Killed In Action. We regret to learn of the death of Lance Corporal W H Lennard of the Dorset Regiment who was killed in action on October 12 last. The sad news was conveyed to Mrs Lennard at 11 The Parade, the deceased's mother, by the usual War Office notification, whilst a covering letter of sympathy signed by Lord Kitchener was also received. The deceased who was formerly a bandsman in the Dorset Regiment joined the ranks in order to obtain promotion. We tender our sincere condolences to the bereaved family.
