A Fitting Tribute

RAF Veteran Sergeant Ian “Jock” Douglas was well loved pillar of his local community in Kilcreggan, the town of his birth.

During his service with the RAF he was stationed on Christmas Island, during the nuclear testing period. When he left the RAF he never forgot his fellow servicemen and when he passed his Estate was left to Erskine.

He lived in Kilcreggan, working in his local shipyard servicing lifeboats for many years. He then downsized a little to servicing cars before moving on to the sales team. His work ethic was such that he was still working until just months before his death.  

Members of St Modan Royal Arch Chapter No 719, as a mark of respect, paid to have the family headstone restored and Ian’s name added to it.

The Grand Superintendent of The PGRAC of Dumbartonshire Alistair G Paton also set up a Memorial Fund in his name. Donations came from all over the Province and it quickly raised £1000.

A fitting tribute to a remarkable man who never forgot his fellow Veterans.
