    I would like to enquire if Lilian Bell had an adopted or foster son John Gibson who was killed during the war ?

      Hello, Sharon, certainly Lillian had a framed picture of a soldier who had died on the wall of her sitting room and she had attached a poppy to it. I have forgotten what his relationship to her was. Father Donal Daly may well know. Are you connected in some way to John?
