TMP 2: McAlpine’s Fusiliers and Spancill Hill
Posted on 8 Jun 2020
This week’s first sup is McAlpine’s Fusiliers, a telling of the hardships of working as a Navvy building Britain’s big engineering projects and the second sup has the lonesome nostalgia of Spancill Hill, missing home from across the ocean.
