It is believed that this is the man commemorated on Moy War Memorial. However, there is NO EVIDENCE at present to collaborate this. John Rainey was the son of Henry and Ann Jane Rainey. He was born on 13th June 1916 in the Omagh area. Sergeant John Rainey was serving with 1 Independent Troop Signal Section, part of the Royal Corps of Signals when he was killed on 28th December 1944 in the Antwerp area, possibly as the result of a V1 attack.
Geel is located midway between Antwerpen (46 kilometres), Hasselt (38 kilometres) and Leuven. In the early part of September 1944, Geel was the scene of some of the heaviest fighting encountered by Commonwealth troops since they had left Normandy. The 50th (Northumbrian) Division and the 15th Scottish Division were both involved here in the forcing of crossings of the Albert Canal and the Meuse-Escaut Canal, necessary for the advance into Holland. Some of the casualties they suffered were originally buried in a meadow near the centre of the commune, and some in the St. Dymphna civil cemetery; these graves were later moved into Geel War Cemetery. The cemetery contains 400 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, six of them unidentified.
