Rifleman Peter Louis Vasse
7th Battalion, Royal Irish Rifles
Husband of Louisa Vasse, Anley St., St. Helier, Jersey.
Killed in action, aged 28 years.
NEWS ITEM in Jersey
Evening Post of Monday 18 September 1916
Roll of Honour. Still another Jerseyman
has given his life for his Country during the past few
days. On Saturday last Mrs Vasse received official notification
that her husband had been killed in action on 6 September.
Rifleman Vasse, who was 28, leaves a widow and two children
to mourn his loss. He was one of the St Helier fishermen
before the outbreak of war and worked in conjunction
with his father, who resides in Patriotic Place, but
he was one of the first to enlist on the Jersey Contingent
being formed. To the members of the bereaved family
we would offer our respectful sympathy.
