Alfred Le Monnier was born on 11 March 1914 in the parish of St Martin, Jersey. At the start of the Occupation he was 26 years old, married to Grace Le Monnier née Golding, and working as a storeman. The couple did not yet have any children.
Le Monnier comes to our attention because, on 28 August 1941, he was sentenced by the Court of the Field Command 515 to three months’ imprisonment for larceny. Because he was tried by the German court, we can assume that his larceny was against the German forces.
On 4 September 1941, Alfred Le Monnier was deported, along with John Le Ruez, to Caen Prison. Le Monnier completed the entirety of his prison sentence there. On 28 November 1941, he was released and sent back to Jersey.
