I do remember Washi Bach very well as a nine year old child when we came to Pencae in Pentrefelin in Amlwch

by Meg Roberts
(Amlwch, Anglesey)




















Hi Wil

Washi came to the door a few days after we moved in. My sister and I were a bit scared of his rough appearance as he just stood there and said nothing.

Washi Bach shook his billy can at us and Mum came and took it off him. She was very kind to him, filled up his can with tea and gave him food. He then went off.

We know he used to sleep in the barns in Tyddyn Dai, a big empty house across the road, because when my sister and I went over there to play as we often did we came across him. We were scared as he sat up suddenly and we ran off home.

We needn't have been scared of him, he had no harm in him at all.

Mum explained who he was as she remembered him from when she used to spend a lot of time in Amlwch, staying with her Aunt in Glanrafon in the port.

Washi came to visit us often, for tea and food. He seemed to have a regular route and we saw him about once a year for a week. He must have had a hard life but he always found kindness and a welcome at Pencae.

We looked forward to him coming. He was never refered to as a Tramp in our house, he was a 'Gentleman of the Road'.

Hwyl
