Nino denied he was retiring when my colleague spoke to him a few months ago - but thanks for the advice.
After all what is time, a mere tyranny.

Hello everyone

I called at Rhos Point Books recently and the gent there said that he will be closing the shop at or around the end of April. I've bought quite a few books off over the years but it looks like he will close the shop and trade at book fairs in future. Not sure when exactly he began there, but i think he was there 15 years ago.

The plan was that his little shop was to be incorporated into a refurbished Ninos cafe.

Appeal to public to give hero's farewell to Rhos on Sea WWII veteran who survived Japanese 'hell ship' and even Hiroshima
British Legion and RAF appeal for public to come to funeral of Herbert Haines, who died in Rhos on Sea aged 97 with very few surviving relatives.

The British Legion and RAF are hoping the public will help give a hero’s farewell to a Second World War airman who died leaving few relatives behind to attend his funeral.

Herbert James Haines - known as Jim - was 97 when he passed away in Rhos on Sea. He is survived only by his elderly wife Vera, who is too ill to attend the send-off, and one relation who lives in Devon.


Mr Haines survived prisoner of war camps in the far east, including time in Hiroshima before and after it was bombed by US forces at the end of the conflict, and veterans charities and forces chiefs want to make sure his funeral is well-attended by people willing to show gratitude for the sacrifices he made during his remarkable military career.

Mr Haines’ wife Vera is in a nursing home and is understood to be suffering from dementia and so is unable to attend.

Herbert James Haines’ public funeral is taking place at Colwyn Bay Crematorium on 11am on Monday.

Will anyone be attending, to show respects?
I think he deserves that to commemorate a long life full of huge achievements many of us could not imagine going through.
One doesn’t have to know the man in order to salute his life.

 Dozens of people turned out to pay their respects to a former RAF officer and ‘true gentleman’ who died leaving few relatives behind to attend his funeral.

Herbert James Haines, who died aged 97, had survived prisoner of war camps in the far east, including time in Hiroshima before and after it was bombed by US forces at the end of the conflict.


His death in Rhos-on-Sea prompted an appeal by The British Legion and RAF chiefs, who wanted to make sure his funeral was well-attended by people willing to show gratitude for the sacrifices he made during his remarkable military career.

Today around 100 people joined his wife of 60 years, Vera, and nephew Mark Delamere from Devon, at a service in Colwyn Bay .
