As you can see, this grave is very badly obscured by a hedge.

It has also proven impossible to trace these two names. The fact they are sons in law of the Wardrop family makes it difficult to determine their surname. I know it is not Wardrop as there are no matches for that surname in 1917.







An updated photo, May 2011 kindly supplied by John Kennedy.



No further forward in identifying the 2 'sons-in-law'.

If they were the sons of Margaret & David Gibb (Margaret possibly nee Wardrop) and the surname was Gibb, perhaps the following could be Hugh, although no sign of a John Gibb. (All supposition of course!!)

Surname GIBB
Firstname Hugh
Service Number S/16902
Date Death 24/03/1918
Decoration
Place of birth Dalserf Lanarkshire
Other 7th Bn.
SNWM roll THE QUEEN'S OWN CAMERON HIGHLANDERS
Rank L/Cpl
Theatre of death F.& F.

Name: GIBB, HUGH
Initials: H
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Lance Corporal
Regiment/Service: Cameron Highlanders
Unit Text: 7th Bn.
Date of Death: 24/03/1918
Service No: S/16902
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Bay 9.
Memorial: ARRAS MEMORIAL
