Will Nally

Will Nally (13 December 1914 – 4 August 1965) was a British Labour and Co-operative Party politician.

Nally joined the Labour League of Youth, and served as president of its Manchester district from 1930-34. He then worked as a journalist, and served as a gunner in the Royal Artillery, then as a war correspondent during World War II. He was elected as the Member of Parliament for the Bilston constituency at the 1945 general election.[1]

Nally stood down at the 1955 general election, citing the problem of splitting his time between his constituency in Wolverhampton, Parliament at Westminster, and his family home in Manchester.[1][2] He was nominated for selection for the seat of Manchester Gorton but was not short-listed.[3]
