Letters to the Editor
Moved by Wal's Life Story
I have just had a quick browse through Issue 47, and once again have come away feeling even prouder to be a Unionist.
The article commemorating Wal Liddle was moving and his thoughts, actions, and commitment should be an inspiration for us all.
The story on cyber organising at IMB also shows how Unions are progressing with the times and the importance of them keeping up-to-date with the latest technology.
Thanks again and keep up the great work!
