A WW2 Photographer from New York captured images of 150 Serviceman and kept them in an extraordinary album. Page 54 of this album is dedicated to Tom William George Hibberd who was born in 1917.

Sadly that same year, his Father George Robert Hibberd was killed in action in France. Despite this, Tom Hibberd signed up to the Navy in WW2. This family had links to Newmarket, Ely and Burwell in Cambridgeshire.

We have learned that Tom married and had a Son, and the whole family emigrated to Australia. Now we seek his family to send them copies of his album page.

Tom Hibberd and his wife Gladys (nee Spain) married in Hendon, Middlesex. Their son Robert was born in Hammersmith, London.

The family are believed to be in New South Wales.  Tom and Gladys were buried at Buderim Lawn Cemetery in Queensland. Prior addresses are believed to have been in Yass, Hume and Wyoming.

Tom had a sister called Olive Mary Hibberd and her family are also welcome to contact us.


Please help us find Tom Hibberd family.
