Cardiff’s War at Sea

During the First World War Welsh coal, much of it exported from the Port of Cardiff, was valued highly by the Navy. It produced less smoke – important when trying not to give your location away to the enemy.

Many of Cardiff’s shipping companies lost ships to U-boat attacks. One of the biggest, Evan Thomas Radcliffe, began the war with 28 ships. During the war 20 of their vessels were sunk.

This tribute was suggested by Cardiff Story Museum. In association with Glamorgan Archives.
