City of Glasgow Roll of Honour address shows what appears to be two entries. There is a Derek Dunlop with the address 1417 Argyle Street, Glasgow, C3. There is also an entry for Derek Frederick Dunlop at 83 Haymarket Street, Glasgow, E2. Both are shown as Sergeants in the RAF. It may be the parents and wife have submitted separate entries for the Roll of Honour. Certainly CWGC only shows one Derek Dunlop in the RAF.
