Some 10 years ago I started to research all Commonwealth heroes who are buried in and near Geel, Belgium (more than 500) Most of them died during a forgotten batle, the liberation of Geel (between the Albert Canal and the Escaut Canal). Sometimes I guide schools and people on these military cemeteries. I talk about my research, the book I wrote about it and the story of individual soldiers. Anyway, the question I received the most is…”who is the highest ranking officer buried here”… I knew his name: Lt Col Gibson J T, servicenumber 27977 from 1/5th Welch, but sadly nothing more. So I started my search for this man (his relatives) and a picture to show the people but sadly without any direct results. (not in books and not even the Royal Welsh Museum at Brecon, South Wales has one) However I was able to receive some newsarticles and more information about the man from a helpfull source: GIBSON. Lt Col, Commanding officer, Jack Tremayne, 27977, D.S.O. 1/5th Bn The Welch Regt, 158th Inf Brig died 20th September 1944, age 41, "Market Garden Op" in the canal crossing area action, he was killed by a sniper. Son of Surgeon Capt George Gibson R.N. & Mary Elizabeth Tremayne Gibson, husband of Jean Gibson of Newcastle, Monmouthshire. (Actually the man was severly injured by the sniper and he was brought to Geel to a ADS which was established in the local mental hospital. Sadly he died of his wounds that same day.) Now I'm looking for a picture. Since he was such a high ranking officer, I assume there just has to be a group picture with him on it. Does anyone can help me with this? Thanks in advance!
