Louis R. Spickett was born in 1924. He served on various ships in the Royal Navy during WW2 including those involved in the Allied invasions of North Africa and Sicily. Immediately after the war he joined the Merchant Navy as a Radio Officer and was on the famous RMS AQUITANIA, Cunard's last Four Funnel Liner, during her last year in service before being scrapped. She was under construction on the Clyde in 1912 when her ‘sister', another Four Funnel Liner, the infamous TITANIC, struck an iceberg and sank during her maiden voyage.
At the age of 32 he met his lifelong partner, Leslie, and they were together for around 50 years, until Leslie died. Louis became Financial Director with an Electronics firm, a Contracts Manager with another, then finally spent many happy years with his partner, running an Antique Shop in Harpenden in Hertfordshire. He now lives in North West London.
