NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Thursday 20 February 1919

Death of Staff Sergeant L Logan in London - Wife Arrives Just Too Late. It is with feelings of the greatest regret we chronicle the fact that one of the best known hotel proprietors in the Island, Mr Lionel Logan of Princes Tower, has died in London of pneumonia following influenza. The deceased shortly after the outbreak of hostilities left Jersey to take up the position of caterer at a Canadian camp at Sandgate. He later joined the forces and has latterly been caterer at St Dunstan's Hostel, with the rank of Staff Sergeant. On Friday last Mrs Logan received a letter from her husband stating that he was ill, but not for her to worry. On Tuesday, however, two telegrams arrived from St Dunstan's asking her to cross at once. She left the Island yesterday morning but today Mrs Clarke of Bath Street received the tragic telegram "Arrived Too Late". The Staff Sergeant, who was 39, was highly respected and very popular amongst all he came into contact with and much sympathy will be felt for the widow, whose only son was killed in action quite recently.

Funeral of The Late Sergeant L Logan. The mortal remains of Sergeant L Logan, licensee of The Princes Tower Hotel, who died at St Dunstan's recently after a brief illness, were laid to rest on Thursday last at Kensal Green Cemetery. The cortege left St Dunstan's in Regents Park headed by a firing party supplied by the Welch Regiment, who also provided the bearers. Following the hearse came three carriages with the principal mourners and two private cars, one being sent by Sir Arthur Pierson. The large number of magnificent floral tributes which were placed on the casket and hearse were ample testimony to the esteem and respect which the deceased had earned during the time he had been at St Dunstan's, the last nine months as Steward. The funeral service was impressively conducted by Canon Henson and the remains having been placed in the family vault the usual Military Honours were accorded, the three volleys being fired and the Last Post being sounded by the buglers.
