The introduction of Allied convoys in 1917 turned the tide against German submarine warfare. In October 1918 US President Woodrow Wilson demanded that German submarines cease operation. After the war, Germany had to surrender its submarines so they could be broken up in British ports. Some of them ended up in Swansea.

This tribute was suggested by Phil Treseder. In association with Swansea Museum.
