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.
