NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Wednesday 31
Roll of Honour. We regret to announce
the death of Private Charles Stanley Simon of the 1st
Hampshire Regiment, only son of Mr & Mrs Charles
Simon of Great Union Road, who to the great anxiety
of his parents and friends had been missing for the
past month, but whose death was officially announced
to the parents today. Private Simon, who was in his
21st year, left Jersey to join the Army on Empire Day
(24 May) and he had been for 2 months facing the enemy
on the Western Front. In civil life he had been a clerk
in the Morris Beef Company's local office and was highly
popular among a large circle of relatives and friends.
He was possessed of much dramatic ability and was one
of the Jersey Dickens Players. The last letter received
by the grief stricken parents stated that death had
no terrors for him and he realised his life was in the
hands of He who gave it. We would express our greatest
sympathy with the bereaved parents and other members
of the family.
