Edwin Hunt, lighterman

Edwin ‘Ted’ Hunt is a man of amazing experiences, and some wonderful stories, as this striking YouTube shows. I’m told that at 95, he’s still with us.

He wrote the illuminating notes below for teaching lightermen – and I share them because I’m sure they are still useful and worth knowing for anyone who operates barges and other craft on the London River. My thanks to Chriss Hallam for posting on the Thames Sailing Barges Facebook page.
