Memorial to Crew Member Freddie Howells
Good research by Andy N has unearthed another memorial to a T R Thompson crew member. Way back on the blog archive (June 2004) a post lists all the crew names, one such member is listed as Frederick Howells. Well frederick is Freddie and there is a brass plaque in the Memorial Hall, West Street, Newport , Pembrokeshire that commemorates Freddie. Freddie, born in Newport, was 28 years old when he lost his life.
In the right hand column of names shown in the photo , Freddie (listed under Seaman) is the fourth named.
Well done Andy.
