Of General Sir Webb Gillman, whose death is announced on another page, it may be said that the Gunners have seldom produced one who, both in barracks and on active service, has proved a more popular and more successful Staff officer and commander. The second son of Herbert Webb Gillman, of Clonteadmore, Coachford, Co. Cork, he was born on October 26, 1870. His father was the senior descendant of John Gillman, who went to Ireland in 1599 as a lieutenant in the Army under the Earl of Essex, and traced his descent from Gifmin, the head of the 4th Royal Tribe of Wales, in whose memory a monument exists at Glynllivon.
