NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Saturday 12 May 1917

Two Brothers Missing. Sometime ago we stated that Private W Livermore of the Dorsets was reported missing somewhere in France and we now learn with great regret that the family have received the sad information that the younger brother, Private F Livermore also of the Dorset Regiment, was reported wounded and missing on 25 March during the fighting in Mesopotamia. We trust shortly to be able to chronicle news of a more favourable character.

NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Friday 28 December 1917

Two Brothers Killed in Action. Mrs Bouchere of Georgetown has received the tragic news that two of her brothers, William and Fred Livermore, have been killed in action. Both were residing in the South of England at the outbreak of war and joined the Dorset Regiment. The eldest, William, was reported missing on 17 November 1916 whilst fighting in France and the younger, Fred, who was serving in Mesopotamia was also reported missing on 25 March 1917 during the fighting near Baghdad. The official intimation has now come through that both were killed on the dates mentioned. The late gallant soldiers were the sons of the late Mr J Livermore and were well known in this Island, which they last visited on leave in 1916, the elder was 40 and the younger 36. To Mrs Bouchere and other members of the family we tender our heartfelt sympathy in their double loss.
