Helier Carré Remembered
A ceremony of remembrance was held recently at the Men of Sark memorial for Helier Carré who died, aged just 18, two days after the Armistice in 1918. A fisherman by trade, Helier died of the Spanish Flu at his barracks in Guernsey, one of four young soldiers of the Guernsey Light Infantry to succumb on the same day. He is buried in the Sark cemetery and, after the ceremony at the memorial, those present went to his grave to pay their respects. The vigil was the last in a series to remember each of the Sark men who died in the two World Wars which started with Alfred Denis on 4th January 2016.
