In order to get feedback on the occurrence, Daily Info Express is attempting to contact family and relatives. Still no response. Once we get enough data, we will update the page. We’ll shortly post more details about Cause of Death.

Who Was Bob Le Sueur?

During the German occupation, Mr. Le Sueur put himself in danger by assisting Russian slaves being transported through safe houses on the Island, notably Feodor Bury (also known as Russian Bill).

Comrade Louisa Gould’s death was the result of the same disregard for personal safety that led to her deportation and subsequent sentencing to a concentration camp for harboring a Russian slave laborer.

His Professional Life

In order to honour Mr. Le Sueur’s lifelong dedication to the Island, Jersey Heritage commissioned a portrait of him, which was unveiled at the Jersey Museum in 2007.

And in 2013, in addition to receiving an MBE for his community contributions, he was also recognized by the Soviet Union for his bravery in assisting Russian inmates.

Bob Le Sueur as the SS Vega, which delivered Red Cross supplies to the Island towards the end of the occupation, was documented
His memoir Growing up Fast, which was published in 2020, detailed his escapades.

He spoke about helping Russian slaves while they were under occupation during the book launch, saying: “I was very clandestine about everything, therefore I was never discovered.

Earlier this year, Mr. Le Sueur, who ran an insurance company in St. Helier during the war and later taught English and modern languages in Hautlieu, started a 5,000 step charity challenge in her garden to raise money to support Ukrainians fleeing the war. This is just one more instance of his sense of community.
