Derrick was my grandfather's best friend - they served together in 129 Company, Pioneer Corps. My grandfather is no longer with us, but he never forgot Derrick. When we visited Normandy in 2009, my wife and I visited Derrick's grave in Hermanville Cemetery and placed a poppy there in remembrance. It was a very rewarding trip, and this was the highlight for me. If anyone related to Derrick should read this, please get in touch. I have photos of Derrick's gravestone and of the cemetery where he lies.
