The Seaman, 1914-1918: Index of names

The Seaman

This index provides information about individuals who were named in the pages of 'The Seaman', the newspaper of the National Sailors' and Firemen's Union, for either meritorious service or death between September 1914 - December 1918. It is arranged in order of surname - an alternative index, arranged in order of the names of the vessels, is also available. In many cases the entries relate to events of the First World War, but some other incidents are also included.

"The ship left New York for London and when 65 miles west of Plymouth she was torpedoed. She sank in about five minutes. Those of the crew who escaped had great difficulty in saving themselves. As the ship was sinking, the gunners stuck to their posts like lions, and we should like it to be brought to notice that one of the gunners, a member of the N.S. and F.U., J. Lechford, A.B., worked with the gun splendidly. We also think there is every reason to believe that he and another gunner sank the submarine. Just before his own ship sank he shouted, 'Every man for himself' and he went down sticking to his gun like it was a man. That was the last we saw of him. He died like a hero.'

De Wolf and Co., Tower-building, Liverpool. She sailed from Valparaiso on 26th August last for Falmouth for orders with a cargo of barley, and nothing has been heard from them since. 'No cause can be assigned for her non-arrival other than that she has probably collided with an iceberg in the vicinity of Cape Horn during the darkness of the night, and has been so seriously damaged that she has subsequently foundered before the crew could be rescued by any passing vessel.'
