The Naval Battle - Jerseymen Amongst Those
Who Have Perished. The terrible news of the great naval
battle has cast quite a gloom over the Island for a
number of Jerseymen are known to have been serving on
one or another of the vessels that have been lost. Amongst
these was Lieutenant John T Le Seelleur of HMS Invincible.
The deceased was the eldest son of Captain J M Le Seelleur
of Haute Place, St Peter. We offer our sincere condolences
to the bereaved family.
A total of 26 Jerseymen are believed to have lost their
lives in the Naval Battle of Jutland on 31 May 1916
and on HMS Hampshire which sank on 6 June 1916 after
striking a mine off the Orkneys.
