Thank you for remembering my Great Uncle Douglas Inskipp who was killed 16th April 1917.
His nephew was born in 1921 and was named after him, Douglas Roberts, who is well at the age of 97 and served in the Second World War in the RAF as a radar operator, and Great nephew born in 1963 was named Stuart Douglas, who sadly died in 2003, also remembered, and his Great, Great nephew born in 1998 was named Matthew Douglas.
Always remembered and so proud.
Rosemary Eade (Great niece)
