NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Tuesday 5 November 1918

Roll of Honour. It is with regret we announce the death which took place in action on 9 October after over 2 years service in France of Arthur C Lewis of the Canadian Field Artillery. The deceased gallant soldier, who was in his 22nd year, was the only son of Mrs J Morrison (nee Lewis) late of 8 Windsor Villas, Val Plaisant and now of the USA. He left Jersey in 1912 and answered the call of the Motherland early in 1915, arriving in France a few months later. The deceased soldier, who was very popular and highly respected by scores of acquaintances and friends in the Island, was last on leave about eight months ago. A Bombardier of his Battery writing to a local friend states that he was killed instantaneously and conveys the sympathy of the boys of his section. We tender the bereaved mother and other relatives our heartfelt condolences.

Commemorated on memorial window in Gouray Church
