it is sad news that Bill Nankerville, father of Bobby Davro passed away this afternoon aged 95 years
Bill was born in Guildford and had a family shop in Walton Road, Woking for many years, many residents will remember him for his exploits in
the athletics world
Bill represented GB at the 1948 Olympic games in London and also the 1952 games in Helsinki,
he was also a member of the 4 x 1 mile World Record team alongside Roger Bannister and Chris Chatterway, no mean feat !
a great supporter of Woking Hospice and was a keen follower of Woking FC
he will be greatly missed
