Note: this biography may be incomplete or out of date. Extension/update suggestions are welcome.

John Gale (1925-) was a young British correspondent, for The Observer, who suffered a nervous breakdown after his experiences in Algeria. He recovered and was re-instated to his position as a feature and news reporter. He described his subjective experiences in an Observer feature in 1966. (The Observer Colour Supplement began a three part coverage on changing attitudes to madness down the centuries. The third part was John Gale's personal account.) He eventually committed suicide.

At age 17, he joined the Coldstream Guards. From 1945 to 1947, he served in Palestine and spent a year seconded to the Transjordan Frontier Force.
