Note: A native of Worcester, Gleave was one of the Auxiliaries killed or mortally wounded in perhaps the greatest single disaster suffered by crown forces in Ireland during the war of 1919-21. He had joined the ADRIC only two months earlier. He had previously been a lieutenant in the Royal Air Force and had been mentioned in despatches during the Great War.
