Can't help you with an obit (have you tried the archives of the local paper?), but found this......


Walter William Perry
~~~~~~~~
born 1919 in South Shields, taken prisoner at Dunkirk and then spent the rest of the war at Lambinowice, Poland.
He was appointed Director of Music and ran many shows during his time there.
We think that he was in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
Does anyone remember him?

Hello Sandra

Walter Perry was a member of the Music Department at Dollar Academy so  there will probably be an obituary in the school magazine. The Academy has an archivist who should be able to look it up for you. The Academy website is at www.dollaracademy.org and the archivist's email is carolan-j[at]dollaracademy.org.uk
