William Walker, a fighter pilot whose poem is part of a national monument to his comrades in the Battle of Britain, has died at age 99.
One is a publicity-shy 72-year old who has made billions selling athletic gear. The other is a 60-something multimillionaire who turned a local bank into a colossus and may have helped cause its downfall as well.
After retiring as chairman of the Ind Coope brewery, Mr. Walker wrote poetry, including tributes to the fliers hailed by Winston Churchill: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
