La Rocque Methodist Church, Jersey
La Rocque closed recently and the Jersey Circuit will be selling the property but we are anxious that this memorial is transferred to a suitable location for preservation.
The fine bronze and enamel memorial to those connected with the chapel who served ‘overseas’ was erected, I think, in about 1926. ‘Overseas’ I take to mean refers those who served outside the Island as opposed to those members of the Jersey Militia who served in Jersey.
ROLL OF HONOUR 1914 -1919
The names of the men connected with
this church who served overseas in
the Great War are here recorded
to be for ever remembered.

I think that a couple of the abbreviations of rank may be a little unusual; eg Chf. p.o. for what I think would be CPO (Chief Petty Officer), Dr. for Driver and Bomed. for ? Bombardier
