- Description: Interview with Charles Martin by the Suffolk Local History Council. Duration 11 minutes. Summary: Mr. Martin recounted his school days during the second World War including part time work on the farm and then full time when he left school at 14. He enjoyed cycling, and babbing for eels in home-made canoes on the marshes. The roads in Southwold at that time were very rough. He and his friends collected pieces of crashed aircraft. Later he joined the building trade, and became interested in motor cycling and gardening. He spoke of the danger of working in old buildings. While on a visit to Wimbledon towards the end of the war he saw a V2 rocket. After the war he enjoyed holidays by motor bike and then by car.
