Jersey Evening Post of Tuesday 17 April 1917
Roll of Honour.
is with deep regret we state that the Casualty List issued this morning contains
the name of another gallant Jersey-Canadian Officer, Lieutenant (acting Captain)
Anquetil Philip Norman. This gallant officer was 35 and was the son of the late
Mr Francis Norman of La Davisonnerie. He was educated at Victoria College from
1893-99 and during the Boer War volunteered and served with the Scottish Horse.
At the cessation of hostilities he returned to Jersey and afterwards left for
Canada and promptly joined the British Columbia Detachment of the Canadian Expeditionary
Force at the outbreak of the present war. While serving in France last June he
was wounded and spent some time in his native Island on sick leave. He later returned
to the Front and unfortunately made the supreme sacrifice at Vimy on 9 April.
The deceased gallant officer leaves a widow and young son, to whom, with
the other relatives in Jersey, we tender our heartfelt sympathy.
