Llŷn and the War at Sea

You may also like

Sailors from Llŷn played an integral part in the Merchant Marine Service throughout the First World War. Many of those who died in the war at sea have no known grave. About half of the lost Llŷn mariners were under 18 or over 38 years of age and would have been either too young or too old for service in the British Army.

This tribute was suggested by Gwerfyl T. Gregory. In association with Llŷn Maritime Museum.
