NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Saturday 2 March 1918

Death of a Jersey Canadian Soldier. News has been received by Mr & Mrs Walter Le Seelleur, late of Le Villot, St Martins, of the death of their eldest son Private Hedley Le Seelleur, which occurred at a military hospital in Canada a few days ago as a result of pneumonia. The deceased, who was 21, left for Canada some 5 years ago and on the outbreak of war he volunteered for service, but was medically rejected, but anxious to enter the Army he volunteered over and over again and was finally accepted six months ago and was still in a training battalion at the time of his death. We would extend our sincere sympathy to the bereaved family.

A bookkeeper by trade, he first enlisted in the CEF on 21 Jan 1916 in Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada; he again enlisted on 19 Sept 1917 in Saint John, New Brunswick.
