Recently Len Kirkham met up with Fran Winward, the widow of best selling author Walter Winward [ OB 1949 - 1955] who passed away in January 2017, as she was interested to know more about Walter's school days.

After extensive travel during National  Service, Walter continued to travel to many parts of the world and became a prolific writer of war-based adventure novels, also writing  for London stage plays and TV scripts.

His second published book, ’The Conscript’ topped the UK best-sellers lists in 1969 and he has spent his later retirement years in Somerset.

Fran has presented Archives with copies of Walter's books for which we are most grateful.
