George Trotter was born in Bermondsey, London in about 1898 and was several years older than Grandad, as he was old enough for military service during the First World War and fought at Passchendale in 1917. Despite this, he had tried to convince the authorities that he was actually 14, but his moustache gave him away. In 1945 when his great nephew Derek "Del Boy" Trotter was born, George tossed a coin to see if he would be Del's godfather and lost to Albert Trotter. He was considered to be quite lazy by Del Boy, as he seemed to always be sleeping. Del let this slide however as he had fought in WW1.
George had died by 1981.
