Gispert Family Memorial
There exists no eyewitness record of Gispert's demise, but the preceding is the generally accepted estimate viewed through the fog of war.

Gispert’s body was never identified, and he is probably buried, along with others killed during the invasion.  In the Singapore’s Kranji War Cemetery his name is inscribed on its walls, along with 24,346 Allied soldiers, sailors, and airmen for whom no remains could be identified, thus no graves establish.

There is a dedication to, 2nd Lieut. Albert S. Gispert, killed in action near Singapore, 11th February 1942, aged 38, R.I.P, on the Gispert Family Memorial in the Catholic burial area of the Brockley & Lady Well Cemeteries, Brockley Grove, Lewisham, London.
"G" - a description: " ... no pretensions to athletic prowess, being short, rather rotund, and a bon viveur, great sense of fun, and humour, but underneath noble instincts ... he epitomises great fun , good fellowship, with solid qualities. " - Cecil Lee  (one of the other original members of the first hash, and Joint Master in 1938-39, while G was OnSec )
