Great War

There could be no other choice of picture this week than this iconic view of the Ibex departing from the New North Quay in St Helier Harbour in 1915, carrying the members of the Jersey Contingent, known as the Pals, off to war. They left behind families and friends who had followed them from a parade in the Royal Square to the Harbour, where they massed on every vantage point to say 'goodbye' many of them for the last time. This is one of dozens of new Great War photographs which we have received in recent days, and they will be added to the site as soon as possible, together with many stories of heroism on the part of Jersey servicemen.
