Source 2: Douglas's last letter home, 8 December 1916
Douglas’s last letter to his mother tells of ‘a very successful Sale of Work’ in aid of wounded soldiers. He was killed two days later when flying over the Thames Estuary. His funeral was held on 13 December and he was buried at Eastminster Cemetery, Sheerness in Kent.
