George Trotter was the older brother of Ted "Grandad" Trotter and Albert Trotter. He never appeared in the series and only a few details are revealed about him by Grandad and Albert. George was several years older than Grandad, as he was old enough for military service during the First World War and fought at Passchendale. He had tried to convince the authorities that he was actually 14, but his moustache gave him away. He was also fliiped a coin with Albert to see who would become Del Boy's godfather.
