Commemorative monument in Guillemont, Somme


On 3rd September, the Bailiff of Jersey unveiled a stone in Guillemont which commemorates the men of the Jersey Contingent, Royal Irish Rifles, who fought and died there in September 1916 and all from Jersey who served in the Great War. Their hearts, like the heart of this stone, lie in Jersey.
