Corporal Bernard Larbalestier

Canadian Field Artillery

Died: 2nd December 1916
Age: 24

Bernard Larbalestier, born 23rd February, 1892, was one of six sons of P Larbalestier, of Charing Cross, Jersey, who were all at [Victoria] College. Bernard entered in 1903, and left five years later. Like many Jerseymen he went to Canada, but gave up his civilian employment on the outbreak of the War, and became a Gunner in the Canadian Field Artillery. He was serving with them in France, with the rank of Corporal, when wounded in 1916. For some time it was hoped that he would recover, but such hopes were disappointed and he died of his injuries.
