Trevor, Allan, Lynley, Neville and families, my deep sympathies and lots of love to you all. It was very special watching the live stream, just sorry I wasn't able to be there.
Uncle Doug was certainly one of life's good buggers, and I have many memories of that grin accompanied with a nip of gin. Rest easy Doug.

it was lovely Dad (Sid) and Doug had the opportunity to meet again and share memories of their younger days. Doug sure was a handsome bloke from the photos and they shared some good times.
