REAR ADMIRAL PHILIP DALY GALLERY 

Rear Admiral Philip Daly Gallery (1907 - 1973) was one of the heroic destroyer men of World War II.

Like his brother, Rear Admiral Daniel Gallery, he was a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy. Prior to service in the Pacific during World War II, he earned the Legion of Merit for his foresight and leadership in the organization and administration of the Anti-Aircraft Training Test Center at Dam Neck, Virginia.

On 29 December 1943, he took command of the destroyer USS JENKINS, earning a second award of the Legion of Merit and two Bronze Stars for distinguished service and combat achievements during the Marshalls, New Guinea, Philippine, and Borneo Campaigns.

After World War II, he commanded Destroyer Division 72; was Executive Officer of the Naval Powder Factory; and commanded the Fleet oiler USS PASSUMPIC. In 1950, he became Officer in Charge of the Gunfire Support School, then commanded the cruiser USS PITTSBURGH from June of 1953 until December of 1954. He later served as commander of the Surface Anti-Submarine Detachment, and served on the staff of the Commander of Operational Development Force of the Atlantic Fleet until his retirement in 1958.

At the time of his death in 1973, he was associated with the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne.

He was buried with full military honors in Section 3 of Arlington National Cemetery, adjacent to his two brothers:

Daniel Vincent Gallery, Rear Admiral, USNA, WWII, Captured A German U-Boat

William Onahan Gallery, Rear Admiral, USNA, Naval Aviator, WWII, DFC


Marie Louise Ransdell Gallery Real Estate Agent

Marie Louise Ransdell Gallery, 87, a native Washingtonian who worked as a real estate agent for Hicks Realty in Alexandria in the 1960s and 1970s, died June 25, 2002, at her home in Augusta, West Virginia, where she had lived since 1990. She had had strokes.

She graduated from Central High School in 1932. Four years later, she married Philip D. Gallery, a Navy officer who retired as a Rear Admiral. In 1941, she helped her husband with administrative work for the establishment of the Anti-Aircraft Training Test Center at Dam Neck, Virginia.

Upon her husband's retirement from active military duty in 1958, the family moved to Alexandria, where she sold real estate for 13 years. In 1971, they moved to Satellite Beach, Florida, where she continued to work in real estate.

Her husband died in 1973.

Survivors include two children, Philip D. Gallery Jr. of Augusta and Marie Louise Gallery Zubroski of Sterling Park; seven grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.


From Sharon M. Gallery: (Mrs. Philip D. Gallery, Jr.)

Now that Philip's wife has joined them in Arlington, would you consider a paragraph on her for his page?  Her name was Marie Louise Ransdell Gallery and she was hostess to a great many members of the military over the years and was Philip's Yeoman when he was assigned to establish the Anti-Aircraft Training Center at Dam Neck. He had arrived to find empty fields and no assistance, so she jumped in and helped him establish the place, later to be replaced by a cadre of Yeomen when Pearl Harbor awakened everyone to the importance of the mission.


The colors, green and gold, and the rampant lions have been adapted from a personal device of the Gallery family. The lions, symbolic of courage and strength, face in different directions, indicating that the brothers, for whom this ship is named, RADM Daniel V. Gallery, RADM Philip D. Gallery, and RADM William O. Gallery, served in both theatres of operation during World War II. The stars allude to their many awards, and denote excellence and achievement. The crossed swords, adapted from the Officer and Enlisted badges, allude to Naval Combat Operations.

CREST

Blue and gold are the colors traditionally associated with the Navy. The upraised arm in green and gold is an adaptation from the Gallery family device. The collared and chained sea- wolf symbolizes the only capture of a U-boat from the German "wolf packs" during World War II. The crest also symbolizes the curbing and destruction of enemy sub activities in the Pacific Theatre. MOTTO: MANU FORTI "With a Strong Hand"
