|On August 31, 2002 at the Annual General Meeting in Henley-on-Thames, it was the great honour and pleasure of the Society to present Willy Dewulf with ISM's second Golden Spanner Award
Willy Dewulf (ISM490) was born on 12 December 1931. A photograph of him aged 4, next to a Meccano model built by his father, was the first witness to his early acquaintance with Meccano. By the age of 8, he was building his own models.
His enthusiasm with which he throws himself into club affairs, his internationalism (he speaks 3 languages) and his dedication to the cause of teaching and passing on what he knows to others made him a popular choice as Golden Spanner Laureate, not just because he is well-liked, but because so many people in so many countries know him from his appearances at their club meetings and exhibitions where he is known from his appearance at exhibitions: monsieur le professeur, standing there in his familiar bleu de travail overall.
