I remember "Washi Bach".


I must have been about 4 or 5 years old, Living in Ucheldre, Llangefni in the 1960's.

I only have memories of him walking past Siop Penry towards the old factory. My mum always threatend my sister and I that if we were naughty that Washi bach would come and get us!

Shame really, The poor guy probably wouldn't have done a thing to us. But My God, the threat was enough to make us behave ourselves.

Mike




Annwyl Mike

I was born at No. 27 and lived next door to Janette, Mrs Peacock and Aunty Sally (Sally Parry).

My memories are the same, though no threat about Washi Bach.

I also remember playing football and stuff with David, Penry's son.

Thanks for getting in touch.

Diolch i ti,

Wil

Ucheldre. My mind nees a jolt.

The Whites lived in Ucheldre, went off soon to South Wales. Thomas Wyn lived opposite the copse of trees (Coed Bach) there by Warburtons and between there and Siop Penry was an old Italian POW camp. Bungalows are there now.

Thomas Wyn had an older brother, David, who has learning disabilities. I well remember David Penry Jones who died young. The Thirsks lived in the same row. I remember the Peacocks, David and Betty.

And on the end, just before the 'Home' with Mr.Howells, was Wynn. Selwyn was the assistant at Penry's store, and we had a cruet at home, and the salt & pepper - S & P - my sister joked, stood for Selwyn & Penry ....
