I met Dave Wallis in about 1979/80.
He was running a writer's group at a Colchester Evening institute.

At that time, I believe he lived at Wivenhoe, a village outside Colchester.

He was a very pleasant man, very encouraging to new writers.

I remember he told us that he had worked his way round the world by working as a deck-hand on tramp steamers.
