NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Monday 7 October 1918

Roll of Honour. The many friends of Private Walter Dale Single of the Dorset Regiment, son of Mr & Mrs Walter Single of 104 St Saviours Road, will regret to learn that the parents have received the sad news that the soldier was killed in action on 19 September, whilst serving with the Egyptian Expeditionary Force. The late soldier was a well known and popular member of the Militia Brigade Band and being a talented violinist was an acquisition to several orchestral societies. He was in his 24th year and previous to joining up was employed by his father in his growers business. To the bereaved parents and sister we tender our sincere condolences in their sorrow.
