Description

‘Boom’ week in March 1918 was a nationwide Ward Bonds race encouraging towns to compete in their fundraising effort. The Mayor of Llanelli, Alderman D. James Davies, was confident the town would meet the target of £100,000 to provide a submarine. Llanelli exceeded its target several times over and was second only to Cardiff.
