(Biography supplied by son Aidan Walls, January 2020.)

P.J. Walls (Rudge Whitworth), made his first official appearance on the course this morning. While walking about the paddock, he was noticed to be limping and his right hand was bandaged. It appeared that he had had a toss while touring round the course on Sunday, and the sequel was that he was brought before Dr Lionel Woods this morning before he was allowed to start. (TT Special, 1 June 1932, p.1)
