Family Sought for Newly Identified War Grave

28 June 2013

Research by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MOD) has identified the grave of Company Serjeant Major (CSM) Andrew Gale of The Queen's (Royal West Surrey Regiment) in Belgian Battery Corner Cemetery, Belgium.

CSM Gale was commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial to the Missing, but research has shown that the grave of a previously unknown CSM in the above cemetery is his.

CSM Gale was born in Hammersmith, enlisted in Battersea, and resided at 14 Quinton Street in Earlsfield with his wife, Olivia Emma, and their three children. He died on 28 September 1918.

The Commission and UK MOD are appealing for family to come forward so that arrangements can be made to mark the grave with a suitable headstone.

In the first instance, please contact the Commission quoting "CSM Gale" at
