2002 meeting Apperley Manor

Written by our very own Society Secretary Fred Lane, this book is about Leo Walmsley's personal wartime experiences during the First World War – a little-documented area of the conflict – using extracts from his own writings, with dozens of his photos and augmented with recently-acquired prime source material.

The Happy Ending on a Kindle reader

The Happy Ending and Sound of the Sea are now available as Kindle and eBook editions.

For Kindle, follow the links here.

eBook editions are available from iBooks, nook, Kobo,
Page Foundry, Scribd and Tolino.

Unfortunately, due to drastic changes in European law, as from January 1st 2015 VAT is now chargeable on all eBooks, but at the rate due in the customer's own country.

The prices quoted on this site are VAT-inclusive for sales to the United Kingdom, so the actual price charged to customers in other countries may vary.

Society Archive

As a responsible and expanding society we need to be aware of all aspects of the Walmsley heritage regarding both Ulric and Leo.

So we are compiling a catalogue of items that others in the future would be able to consult for historical and research purposes.

Such items may include—but are not limited to—letters, signed books, manuscripts, documents, photographs.


Full details and suggestions are
available here.

The BE2c

These are larger images of those that appeared as thumbnails on page 48 of the Society Journal Autumn 2014.

Although the same model of aircraft, this is not one of those actually used by Leo, but I thought these up-close shots they may be of interest.
This plane is housed at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford.
