NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Wednesday 16 June 1915

Roll of Honour. Another Jerseyman Killed at the Front. A letter which Mrs Mallett of 9 Seale Street received yesterday from the Chaplain to 2/4 Black Watch conveys the sad new of the death of her husband at the Front. The Chaplain writes "I deeply regret to have to intimate that your husband Private S Mallett was killed on 2 June. His death was caused by a bullet which I think hit him in the head but of this I am not quite sure. There was no great battle going on that day but in some way your husband must have exposed himself to the fire of the enemy. There were 4 men of the Machine Gun section killed that day in the trench by shell but I know that was not the way your husband was killed. Your trial is great but you have the satisfaction of knowing he died in the noble service of his Country. I am requested by the Colonel and Officers to express to you their sympathy in your time of trouble."
Private Mallett was a son of the late Mr John Mallett of the Mitre Hotel, Broad Street.
