My father Duncan Gillespie was named after his uncle. My Grandfather Robert Fraser Gillespie was in Belgium at the time of Duncans death and he was later wounded at Passchendaele. It was a very emotional journey visiting those cemeteries and seeing the utter waste of young lives and thinking of what might have been.
