World War II
« on: Wednesday 06 December 17 13:27 GMT (UK) »
Hi
Can anyone help me with a World War II fallen. I am looking for an image for Douglas Genders born 5 Oct 1912 in Dublin and died 11 Sep 1939.
Many thanks

Both Douglas and his brother Henry Joshua Kingstone genders are commemorated at Khartoum Cemetery

You might find a photo in his parents'  local newspaper.*  Here is his entry on CWGC site:

The RAF might hold a photograph.

Here's Henry's entry:

* Henry's  Roll of Honour in the Chelmsford Chronicle gives his father's address as Durrant Road, Parkstone, Dorset.  So perhaps a local Dorset newspaper might carry photos of them.
