Washi Bach - King of the Road
Just touching base with the site this morning. I am amazed at the contributions received regarding Washi Bach - from all corners of the island and beyond. Many thanks for including the photos.
Not a mere tramp surely, but 'King of the Road'
Many regards and look forward to more interesting comments.
Diolch yn fawr am alw'n ol. Thanks for calling back and I agree entirely with your sentiments about Washi Bach.
A great many tramps were abroad in the whole of Britain during those years, mostly damaged by the First World War. Many still held on to their mess tins and army coats, which must have been daily reference to past times.
It is a great sadness that old soldiers who were one of a mutually dedicated Band of Brothers in appalling circumstances found themselves isolated from society in peacetime.

As always, my warmest regards to you, Hugh.
