Derek "Spearo" Ling his life on the water, now 82 years old but still able to amuse us all with his words of wisdom and wonderful Barge Master Stories. This is PART 1 of an episode chronicling his life from school boy to Freeman of the city of London and Freeman of the Waterways.
Filmed over 3 hours in different sessions Spearo describes the life, love, loss, experience and many humorous stories. He describes the war years, cargos, gifts and much more...
Spearo is my father in law and I have so often listened to his stories over the years but thought now is the time to catch them on tape for prosperity so I had a go knowing Spearo wouldn't disappoint me. I have an interest in this generation and greatly admire their knowledge, wisdom and experiences especially throughout the war years.
