George Gibbons saw service during the Great War as a Private (No.2077) with the 1st Battalion, Royal Devonshire Yeomanry, and saw service out in Egypt from 23rd September 1915. Having transferred as a Driver (No.T-385094) to the Army Service Corps, he was then demobilised. It is possible that Gibbons then rejoined for the Second World War and died in service. Otherwise this last medal in the group is possibly to a relative.
