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.

First World War editions of 'The Seaman' have been digitised and are available to read online.

If you are viewing this on a screen of standard width, choosing the option to view the data in a pop-out table may make the index easier to navigate.

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.'
