In the early nineteenth century, Barmouth developed a name for its rapidly developing port and busy ship yards. By the outbreak of the First World War, much of Barmouth’s shipping industry had disappeared. However, the town still produced fine seafarers, who contributed their skill and dedication to keeping the British supply lines in operation.

This tribute was suggested by Les Darbyshire. In association with Barmouth Sailors’ Institute.
