I first met Douglas in the early 70s when we were both working for the Post Office in Scotland. He was friendly and helpful. Our careers in the Post Office went their different ways for some years, but we met up again in Post Office – it was a pleasure to renew the connection. I’ll not forget his mischievous grin, and pawky sense of humour. I’ll miss him.
Douglas was delightful, full of fun generous of spirit. Always with a positive word for all. He will be missed Bw Beth
Dougie the Buggie! I was working at Osterley Park as Visitor Receptionist Assistant and Douglas joined as a volunteer, running the ‘buggie’ from the car park to Osterley House. Many a conversation about cats! and and a bit of help with Spanish.
Much love Dougie to you and your family, Gerry
I always enjoyed meeting Douglas. He accompanied Christine on international trips for occupational therapy conferences and was a breath of fresh air. Since I retired I have really appreciated his support, kindness and great humour when they came to see me. A lovely man.
I only met Douglad 3 or 4 times, and always overseas, but he struck me as a very humerous, engaging and courteous man, and a great supporter of Christine. I shall never forget walking through a plane on a long haul flight, and coming across Christine, reading academic paperwork, and Douglas (at least I think it was Douglas!)trying to sleep with a blanket over his head!
Rest in Peace Douglas x
It has been a great pleasure meeting Douglas in conferences or social events with Christine and I will always remember his sense of hour and engaging personality. May he rest in peace.
I immensely enjoyed two Friends of Osterley holidays which Douglas organised brilliantly. We covered so much ground but never too much and Douglas always had most interesting information to impart with witty and amusing anecdotes. I very much appreciated his “Friday Funnies” during lockdown. I shall really miss his input to the Friends of Osterley
