in 2009 Rod Weale returned to the UK after 20 years abroad. In the UK, he was a Police Officer and worked in industry before moving to Spain in 1987. Involved in aviation and historical research in 2015, Rod published "To the end, to the end, they remain" a book of biographies of the casualties from the 1914-1918 War Memorial in Cranleigh (Surrey). This was followed by a further edition on the Fallen who had been pupils at Godalming Grammar School.
In better times Rod works as a Tour Guide and much of his work involves taking American guests to the airfields from which their family members flew. A semi-professional genealogist Rod also works freelance researching the families and military careers of The Fallen. He also offers talks as a volunteer to groups on genealogy and “family tree research”.
Rod is a Parish Councillor and an active member of Lions Clubs International
