Default Chaplain Douglas Daniel Dibble

I have not been able to find out much about the Reverend Douglas Daniel Dibble beyond his birth, marriage and death details and a wartime connection with H.M. Dockyard, Chatham

Cool Chaplain Douglas Daniel Dibble

He is wearing an RAF Chaplains collar badge on his lapel, strange as he is associated with Chatham dockyard.

Thank you, that is the reference that I found where he is described as a Champlain. I think that means that he was the best performer in the Chaplains' League that year. It was very close though and came down to the number of home goals conceded.

Yep thought it might be one you were aware of - I was tempted to take away the "m" but thought, well, that's what the ref says.......
