One day the curate came -- he was riding a bike -- he came up to Holston, where we were living. The first thing she did was to give him this letter which said I had been in the choir; so I had to go and join the choir at Churston, nineteen hundred and ten. I've been singing there ever since, still do.

Well they wouldn't bend cold, so we had what we called the steam kiln, push'um in there for two three hours and steam them, take them out, take them down to the ship and put them around -- but when you was carrying them on your shoulder, you know, everybody used to put their cap on their shoulder to keep us from being scalded.

‘Yeah. Brian Palin, he had the first Provident, well she got lost in the first World War, you know submarines used to come up and put a bomb on them and give the crew a chance to get away, then blow them up.’
english_devon01_0150[PLAY]
Well, Brian was without a ship when, end of the War, and he had this Provident built (unclear), and uh he didn't have her very long because the fishing industry died out and she was taken over privately as a yacht.
