My Anglesey Connection and Washi Bach
by Mike Turner
I have recently returned from a visit to my ancestral area on Anglesey and reflected on the massive changes in Beaumaris so many restaraunts
and expensive shops.
This made me mindful of such basic lives as Washi Bach.
I met up with a friend who grew up in Cemaes Bay she had many recollections of Washi Bach from the 50,s and 60,s.
She would spy him quite often as she was taken to school or shopping and was told to take care or Washi would frighten her - You know how parents would.
She commented that rumours included that Washi was a well educated man from a good background to the extent that he had learned Welsh.
My brother who lives in Italy also remembers him in those tranquil times living at Nain's.
