Congratulations to Brian Walley who celebrated his 100th birthday on July 2nd 2022. Brian is a long-time member of the Welsh Society and a keen writer. Brian is the author of "Sole Survivor: A life on Borrowed Time" which recounts his life from his early years in Cheshire, bomber pilot in the RAF, prisoner of war, farming in Anglesey, migration to Australia, farming and prospecting in Australia, and retirement. Brian's war years are recounted in the book "Silk and Barbed Wire" which he also edited. Sadly Brian lost Mair, his wife of 76 years, recently, and who hailed from Anglesey. Brian and Mair's contribution to the Welsh Society is greatly valued.
