NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Wednesday 12 September 1917

Roll of Honour. Another loyal Jerseyman, who though over military age volunteered in the Country's hour of trial, has been called upon to make the supreme sacrifice. We refer to Ernest William Marshall, son of Mr H G Marshall of 51 Clearview Street. This loyal soldier was for some years employed at our offices and afterwards worked in London. In October 1915 he, with a brother Ted Marshall, joined the Royal Army Service Corps and since then he has seen service in Egypt and in the Balkans, where he was wounded. Later he was transferred to somewhere in France and on 4 September died of wounds received from a hostile aircraft. The late soldier was 46 and news of his death will be received with regret by scores of old time acquaintances and friends. To the family we tender our sincere condolences.
