JOYCE Dempsey's appeal for anecdotes about her uncle, Huddersfield rugby league legend Douglas (Dougie) Clark, has generated a big response from Examiner readers.
Joyce is collecting stories for a book about Douglas, who played for Fartown 485 times between 1909 and 1927.
She plans to put it next to a statue of her uncle, who died in Birkby in 1951, at a new museum in his home town of Maryport, Cumbria.
On April 10 she asked Examiner readers to send her their memories of Douglas. She said: "I've had a big response, with lots of people phoning and writing."
Joyce is particularly intrigued by the story of Norrie Brown.
The Farnley Tyas man wrote to Joyce last week to share his memories of Douglas's time in the Home Guard during the Second World War.
She said: "Some of the older men found marching very difficult, so Douglas carried their rifles for them - six across each shoulder."
Joyce has asked anyone with pictures of Douglas in his Home Guard uniform to write to her at 26A Fenwickland Avenue, Belmont, Ayr KA7 3QB or call 01292 282 154.
