  1. Bobby Malseed was one of the nicest bank managers you could meet. He was not a 'push over' for customers as he was also a very shrewd banker. I got to know him well as a result of management and lending courses we both attended and I found him to be very supportive of bank policy. He served in the North Irish Horse - a tankey outfit that swanned about the battlefield while the PBI had to slog it on foot. His few tales of his experiences were invariably laced with humour. I had a great lot of time for Bobby.

    1. David, thank you for your very interesting story on Bobby Malseed.

  2. I think he's part of the Malseed Family from Londondery.
