Poetic Obituaries: Best known is Our Wall, written to

celebrate the stone inscription of the names of 2,937 members of The Few. During the 70th anniversary commemorations in July 2010, the Patron of the Trust, Prince Michael of Kent, unveiled a copy of the poem, carved and sited alongside the wall it describes. To great acclaim, [William] Walker then read the poem, which describes the "many brave unwritten tales/That were simply told in vapour trails".

His poems were published in 2011 with the proceeds donated to the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust.
