An interview with Derek “Spearo” Ling – Barge Master
The story of Spearo is filmed by his son-in-law, Chris Rudland, who says “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 posterity 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.”
