The first place to look when researching the Channel Islands in The Great War is The Jersey Archive.

A good example is this book by Ian Ronayne:

"Jersey's Great War" by Ian Ronayne

Jersey Archive is open to the public on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only (late night last Thursday in month).

The Jersey Archive will be closed for stock-taking during the first full week of December.
