    I remember meeting Doug at my first ever tournament abroad in Basel, Switzerland where we shared a room. He was a regular visitor there and I think it was one of his favourite tournaments. In addition to the badminton. He was a lovely soft spoken gentleman. I too send my condolences to his widow and family. RIP Doug.
