Jack Dor­gan

BBC History Magazine - - WWI Eyewitness Accounts -

For­mer miner Jack was badly wounded on the western front in 1916. He never for­got the trau­matic death of two of his pals, Jackie Oliver and Bob Young. When I in­ter­viewed him at his home in Not­ting­ham, he said that ev­ery time he saw their names on the Menin Gate memorial in Ypres, he thought: “My name could have been on there as well!” Jack died in 1989.
