A BBC History website mentions Sammy Walker in an article recalling the WWII service of a friend, Nolan Johnston.
'The Ulster Bank Story' by Lyn Gallagher features a Sammy Walker on pages 257 and 258 in an article on 'Ulster Bank at Leisure'. Walker took part in a comedy routine with his colleague Ken Hobson. Walker is also recorded as being at the height of his rugby international career.
