ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Friday 14 December 1917
of Honour. Yet another Jerseyman has made the supreme sacrifice in the person
of Alfred John Marie of 19 Hill Street. He joined the 1st Hampshire Battalion
this year and after a brief leave in June last was sent to the Western Front.
His bereaved fiancée has received official news from the Record Office
that he was killed in action on 29 November 1917, and was buried in a place called
Happy Valley, where the Chaplain committed his remains to their last resting place,
the clergyman writing a most sympathetic letter to the relatives. Private Marie
was well known in Jersey, having been employed by the Parish, especially on the
steam roller. To the bereaved family we tender our sincere condolences.
