Memories of Wilmslow, Romany's Caravan c1955
I was evacuated to Chester during World War II and met Romany and his dog Raq on a number of occasions when he visited our school. He talked to us about the countryside, did beautiful simple charcoal drawings of the creatures he was discussing, told us what to wear to become 'Nature detectives' and even played tunes for us on the piano. He was a lovely man.
