Interview with Fred Spencer. Two

Title

Interview with Fred Spencer. Two

Description

Fred Spencer grew up in Bradford and was fourteen when war was declared. He worked at a department store in Bradford and served in the Home Guard while awaiting his call up papers. He thought he would be going into the Army but found he’d been called up for the RAF. He trained and was posted to 103 Squadron and 576 Squadron at Elsham Wold. The cold weather made an impression on him and he often found his bike frozen solid outside when he finished his meals. They got used to bringing extra tea to just throw on to the bikes to defrost.
