of Honour. It will be remembered that some little time ago one of the sons of
Mr Philip Luce of Oxford Cottage, St Ouens was killed in action and the family
will have the sympathy of all our readers when we state that the eldest son, Sapper
P J Luce of the Royal Engineers, has now been called upon to make the supreme
sacrifice. This soldier, who was 32, had served in the Army for several years
and was a most efficient soldier held in the highest respect by all. We offer
our sincere condolences to the bereaved relatives.
