NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Thursday 17 May 1917

The mother of Private A W Maguire of the Wiltshire Regiment who resides in Seale Street has received news that her son has been seriously wounded and is now in hospital in Salonika. This soldier, who was formerly a carpenter employed by Mr J T Ferguson, joined up under the Derby Scheme. His wife and family reside at Portland. We trust that favourable news will shortly be received.

NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Wednesday 5 February 1919

Roll of Honour. Some time ago we stated that Private A Maguire of the Wiltshire Regiment had been reported missing on 21 March 1918. The relatives have had several months of anxiety and now, unfortunately, their worst fears have been confirmed by the receipt of official news to the effect that the soldier was killed on the above date. The late Private Maguire was a son of Mrs Maguire of 3 Seale Street and was, before leaving Jersey, a highly respected employee of Mr J T Ferguson. To the mother and the widow, who resides in England and who is left with three young children, we offer our heartfelt condolences.
