(Now in Cumbria)
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.
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.
