Washi Bach Memories

by Ray
(swansea)

Hi Wil


I left anglesey as a six year old in 1959. It's been so long that until now Washi Bach seemed like a figment of my imagination.

My images of him are sketchy. He seemed rather sinister to a timid child like me, so I tended to hang back.

Not that we saw him often, but I well remember people speaking of him. My mother once said something about pigs having attacked his dead body in a field pigs will eat anything.

If true it's very sad. yes he is indeed a legend.

By the way, we lived in Bryn Du.

Sut mai, Ray?

How are you? Really nice to hear from you.

If I remember well, Rhosneigr is a suburb of Bryn Du isn't it? The old Queen's Pub, where an old lady used to serve you a pint straight from a cask through a hatch. Like being in her living room.

Now Washi Bach. Stories and legends abound. I have spoken to people from Llangefni, Llynfaes and Porth Amlwch and there is - thankfully - a consensus that he died in a workhouse hospital in Conway.

I understand he was found under some bushes riddled with TB. Bloody tragic or what?

I share my Mum's memores and those of others on another comment page Link Below). I think my Mum's memory offers a clear idea of what sort of person he was and of the kidnesses he could expect in some places.

My very best wishes to you and don't be a stranger.

Nos da

Wil

Yes WIL the beer barrels was behind the bar at the queens and the old lady in her apron pulling pints straight from the barrels,but paying her was the laugh if you ordered say two pints and a packet of crisps she use a piece of white chalk and do her sums on the wooden barrels and the till was a drawer.When you walk into the pub you swear blind it was someones front room with all the ornaments, and all young and old lads gave her the highest respect.Yes wil another sir fon legend
