Douglas Burton Mason
Date Posted
Douglas was my uncle, my father's only sibling, who was killed on 20 April 1945, just days before the war ended. He was a fine young man, sadly one of many who lost their lives. Family were informed by telegram in those days and there was no money or possibility for family to visit his grave. Many years later, in 2004, my husband and I were the first family members to visit his grave in the Forli War Cemetery in Vechiazzano, Italy - a very emotional and humbling experience.
