  • RIP my Great Great Uncle David. We never met of course but we all knew your face as we were growing up my as my Grandmother your niece had a photo in a frame of you on her mantle piece. The photo of yourself was actually a post card from you to your wife sent from Egypt and is lovely. I now have that postcard in a frame at home with me here in Brisbane Australia. Sore with the Angels. Your loving Great Great Nephew Trevor Doig
