We Will Remember Them

Today Tim Jenkins and I attended the Merchant Naval Memorial in Swansea which to the Swansea branch of the Merchant Navy Association eight years raising funds for the memorial. Swansea City Council also contributed. Local sculptor Philip Chatfield designed the memorial, which features the figures of a sailor and a fisherman.

Why a fisherman? Many fishing vessels were requisitioned for use as minesweepers in wartime. Those that remained in fishing use played a vital role in keeping Britain fed, but were vulnerable to enemy attack. Wales’ fishing fleet lost eight vessels, with 13 casualties, in the First World War, and a further 32 vessels, with 106 casualties, in the Second World War.

Two of the Swansea seamen who died in the First World War, Richard Gaul and James Osborne, lost their lives when the passenger liner RMS Lusitania was torpedoed off Ireland in 1915. Some of the merchant seamen were lost at sea after surviving earlier torpedo attacks. Evan Basil Davies, for example, escaped from a blazing oil tanker and survived 41 days adrift in a ship’s lifeboat off Africa, but died in another torpedoing the following year.

More details about each of the individuals is available in Byron Jones’ books of remembrance. There are copies in the West Glamorgan archive at Swansea Civic Centre, among other places. The titles are: Book of Remembrance Seafarers from Wales of the Mercantile Marine & Fishing Fleets who lost their lives during World War One 1914-1918; and Book of Remembrance Seafarers from Wales of the Merchant Navy & Fishing Fleets who lost their lives during World War Two 1939-1945.
