Douglas Highton attended St Peters Prep School in Weston-super-Mare with Roald Dahl. As a friend, Douglas supported Roald during an incident at school, which Roald would never forget and later recounted in his autobiographical book Boy.
Douglas also appears anecdotally in the short story Lucky Break, and as a character in the short story The Swan. The two stayed in touch over the years and Douglas would visit Roald at home in Great Missenden where Roald kindly signed many books for Douglas grandchildren, Andrew and Rebecca.
