The Seaman, 1914-1918: Index of ships

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 the name of the vessel - an alternative index, arranged in order of surname, is also available. In many cases the entries relate to events of the First World War, but some other incidents are also included.

Bound volumes of 'The Seaman' are available to view at the Modern Records Centre:

  • 1914 - document reference MSS.175A/4/1/3
  • 1915 - document reference MSS.175A/4/1/4
  • 1916 - document reference MSS.175A/4/1/5
  • 1917 - document reference MSS.175A/4/1/6
  • 1918 - document reference MSS.175A/4/1/7
