NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 14 December 1914

Roll of Honour. Still another name must be added to the already long list of those who have given up their lives in the service of their King and Country since the outbreak of war. Yesterday Mr E C Lock of Clearview Street received an official message from the Admiralty stating that his son Able Seaman Walter Henry Lock had lost his life on the Maidstone (a submarine) whilst on duty. The message gives no details and it is not known when or how death occurred. For the father and other relatives it must for the present suffice that the deceased at the time was at the post of duty. He joined the Navy 15 years ago at the age of 16 and was last on the Island some 18 months ago.
