21/52 Belize – Sam Martinez

Sam Martinez was born 10 February 1918 in Honduras, now known as Belize. He came to Scotland in 1942 to help with the war effort as a lumberjack. He lived until the age of 106 having many careers and children, and becoming a dedicated fan of local football team the Hibs.

In this episode I speak to his grandson Yutsil Hoyo Diaz Martinez, who is making a documentry about Sam’s life. You can follow him and project on Instagram and Twitter.

Thank you to Sana Bilgrami for putting us in touch.
