NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 22 October 1917

No News. We regret to state that some anxiety is felt regarding Private C S Simon of the 1st Hampshire Regiment, only son of Mr Charles Simon the well known employee of the Jersey Waterworks Company. It is now a month since a letter was received from the soldier, who was serving on the Western Front. We sincerely hope that the parents will shortly have favourable news.

NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Wednesday 31 October 1917

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.
