Washi Bach. An Annual Visitor

by Gwilym Hughes
(Pentraeth)

Hello Wil


Washi bach was indeed an annual visitor who used to call past Will Howarth's yard in Pentraeth and end up in Tan 'Rallt,/b>.

I remember him well sitting in the grass verge smoking. We chatted often as we kids played on the old railway line - what is now ,b>Hendre Hywel
.

This was in the late 60s and we, 'Gang Stesion' (the 'Station Gang') - Alun, Albert, Adrian, Charlie, Hughie, Gary, Maria and Nigel - would have been between 7-12ish. We used to drop off the old bridge structures by Will's place as a daily 'chicken' test, or at the other end lie down on the road until a car came.

Mad I know!

I often think about him now but, could not remember his face until I saw the photograph on your website. Thank you.

He was regarded with respect by all who knew him. The men saying they wish they could live like him, and the women looked on him with a motherly concern.
