I toured wales in 2000 looking through quaint old hamlets and villages asking locals if anyone knew of him 80 yr olds and above and also hit the local libraries and BDM's office and was told by one dear lady oh the yanks are here each yr looking for traces of him - saw some beautiful countryside mind you yakki dah - and beat the foot and mouth epidemic by a year I think - I think I've still  got some diary accounts of our Welsh travels?

The Welsh are a   very friendly bunch. The Pembrokeshire  coastline is beautiful.


My problem it rained too much so hence moved to warmer climes.

We go back often to see family but generally can't wait to get back here sun

yep that's him had most of his books once and then threw them all away - I considered him a fraud - tried to get people to donate money to a charity for disabled kids and that was a fraud too.

the sailing fraternity on the island he lived on in Thailand had no time for him nor did the local Thais and there was no evidence he was ever Welsh
