We believe that Private R. Gee may be Richard Gee, a coal miner contractor, who lived at Franklin Road, Jacksdale. He was b. abt. 1868 at Grassmoor, Derbyshire. He was husband to Mary Hannah Gee (nee Barlow) and father of Arthur Gee, also named on the Jacksdale War Memorial as having served.

Richard may seem too old to have served being 46 at the start of the war but by 1918 men up to the age of 51 were being conscripted, so he could have been called up late into the war.
