Part 8 - The bloke that couldn’t sing, dance or recite but offered to ‘fight the best man in the house’ there was ‘blood flying all over the place’. Eyes would be on any stranger that entered the pub at Blaxhall, Keith mentions being told at Framlingham that Blaxhall was the best place for songs but that he shouldn’t go there. The Cockneys that used to come down to the area (for the hop picking).
Interviewee notes: Of the Ling family of Blaxhall, Suffolk
