An aspect of the First World War which was not to be repeated in the second conflict 25 years later was the ability of Jerseymen serving in the forces to return home on leave. This picture shows brothers Georges and Henri Langlois, sergeants in the intelligence department of the Jersey Contingent who were able to return to Jersey briefly in 1917. They are pictured with their father Alfred and mother Victorine and sister Madeleine on the right. George Langlois' wife Berthe (nee Le Miere) is seated on the left and their children Yvonne (3) and Alfred (5) are either side of their grandmother.
