NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Saturday 4 November 1916

Roll of Honour. We regret to announce that another young Jerseyman, Arthur Jack Mackay, the younger son of Mr William Mackay, Collector of Customs, and Mrs Mackay of Limassol, Cyprus, and grandson of the late W Mackay of Gorey, has made the supreme sacrifice. This brave soldier, who was 21, came from Cyprus only a few months ago to join the London Scottish. He proceeded with his Regiment to France where earlier this week he was shot whilst on sentry duty. Arthur Mackay was for many years a boarder at Oxenford House School and made many friends who will hear with regret of his untimely decease. We offer the relatives our sincere sympathy in their bereavement.
