In mem. Glen Cavaliero 1927–2019
1972 Powys Centenary — L-R: G. Wilson Knight, Angus Wilson, Colin Wilson, Glen Cavaliero (far right), and others A Message from Glen on the occasion of his 80th birthday
I would like to thank the many members of the Society who sent me their good wishes on the occasion of my recent 80th birthday, either on individual cards or on the array of signatures in a folder whose cover carried a beautiful photograph of Glastonbury Tor. I was so touched and heartened by this evidence of shared enthusiasm and friendship, for The Powys Society has now been a source of companionship and delight to me over what is now half a lifetime. I am so grateful to everybody concerned, for you have made what was in any case a good day for me something extra special, ‘your wone selves’.
