In the course of research into Great War burials in Almorah cemetery at St Helier, Jersey, it became apparent that two men who served with the Royal Jersey Garrison Battalian had headstones showing the crest of the Royal Guernsey Light Infantry. This error was accepted by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission who undertook the task of replacing the stones. This was completed in October 2008.

On 8th November 2008 Jersey's Lieutenant Governor, Lt-Gen Andrew Ridgway, CB, CBE, was present at a service of rededication, led by the Dean of Jersey, The Very Revd Robert Key.
