Washi Bach

by Eleanor
(Now in Cumbria)

Hi Wil,

Yes I remember Washi Bach who often used to visit Penygraigwen and Parc in north west Anglesey when I was a child.

He was a harmless soul and we weren't a bit scared of him as children. He would always sing for us for a penny, twirling his walking stick.

I clearly remember his OXO tin tucked under his arm and the old army overcoat he wore.

This is a very interesting page thanks for sharing.

Eleanor




Dear Eleanor

Thank you for sharing another warm memory about a lost legend on Anglesey.

Washi Bach left a very poignant memory with so many people. I'm glad that Anglesey Hidden Gem has become a lovely gathering point for those who care to give an emotional significance to his presence and his passing.

Thanks to Gwilym Hughes as well who also remembers him in Pentraeth when he was a young lad.

Diolch

Wil

Oxo tin !
by: Andrew Weare, 63 oed.

Gawd. yes!

That Oxo tin he carried! It slipped my mind for a few decades.

MANWEB men used to sport them too, as lunch boxes. One popular can that 'Oxo' tin.

Whew! More memory fun later folks. ImagineDrew, Llangefni from age 4'ish to age 16 - that'll be 1965 aged 16. "Washi-Bach" would appear at the end of the cul de sac where No. 17 Pencraig Estate still stands in all its glory.

Will someone evoke a Folk-song for this reknowned apparition we all know and reminisce over?

Washi-Bach, ynte.

Andrew
