Found these in the Punch archive, including some with GW relevance. The heading mentions that KB was a veteran of Gallipoli.

Shussh! Careless talk costs lives! 

 

He (Bird) was a civil engineer (AMICE 1909) He was employed as an assistant engineer under Alexander Gibb  1909-1910 at Rosyth Dockyard and was a sub-agent for Gibb 1909-1914.  Bird was commissioned into the RE (S)  in October 1914 and was badly wounded in Gallipoli. Coincidentally, Gibb was commissioned into the RE as a Lt Col employed in the Docks Directorate in France until early 1918 when he was transferred the the Admiralty as as  CivilEngineer-in-Chief.
