The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
There used to be brass plaque behind the bar, a quote from Napolean. Can anyone remeber it?
That's going back a fair few years dude!!!
The quote was along the lines of letting a man surprise you with his initiative.
How old are you mate my dad and uncle were both at willich in the early 70's
Oh, I wasn't there in the 70's unfortunately. Fantastic posting though, great social events.

I only went to Willich once, they were all asleep
Check out the quotes in the link
I looked on the site but couldn't find it, checked on another site and found something similar though:
"Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do, and they will surprise you with their ingenuity."

I was in Willich in the late 70s early 80s. Three years of solid drinking. Its been levelled and is now an industrial park/business centre. A very sad loss.
I drive past quite often and it's amazing how it has expanded over the years. The tower is still there, wasn't it called the Pimmel Had a fantastic time with Sappers.
