    Merchant Navy Day 'Fly the Red Ensign'

    Tredegar Town Council will Fly the Red Ensign on Bedwellty House in Tredegar for the third time.  The Council recognises the enormous contribution the Merchant Navy made during both World Wars and continues to make today.  We are searching for all those who served in the Merchant Navy to come and join our commemorations.

    While many people know that the 3rd of September 1939 marked the outbreak of the Second World War, few are aware that it also marks the first major British maritime casualty. The merchant vessel SS Athenia was torpedoed just a few hours after hostilities were declared with the loss of 128 passengers and crew.

    Although many hundreds of merchant ships and thousands of seafarers would meet the same fate in the years to come, the 3rd September is now enshrined as ‘Merchant Navy Day’ to honour the brave men and women who kept our island nation afloat during both World Wars, and now even during peacetime continue to face the more routine perils of violent storms and mountainous seas.

    The Red Ensign, or ‘Red Duster’ as it is affectionately known, has been the recognised flag of the British Merchant Navy since 1854.  It has become inextricably linked with the world-wide trade links that made the United Kingdom’s fortune in the intervening years and, while there are now fewer ships on the home register, many thousands of British seafarers still work on the oceans of the world, underpinning the vast majority of the international commerce that keeps our economy buoyant.

    Town Mayor, Cllr Haydn Trollope said, ‘By volume, 95% of our trade comes by sea; without it, we would surely become an insignificant island off the coast of Europe.  But the majority of today’s large ports are high security operations, often miles from town and city centres.  Many young people know little of ships and seafarers, and fail to appreciate their absolutely vital contribution to our way of life.  I strongly believe that a visual demonstration of the debt we all owe to merchant seafarers, past and present, should become an annual feature of our town’s calendar.’

    ‘We invite all Merchant Seafarers past and present, from Tredegar or elsewhere, to come and join us at Bedwellty House.  Quite a few joined us last year and we hope that this year’s event will attract more veterans and their families.  We sincerely hope that our townsfolk, who show such great support on Remembrance Sunday, will also come and join us on the day.’

    If you served in the Merchant Navy, or know someone who did, please contact Clare Price on 01495 722352 or at tredegartc@btinternet.com to let us know if you are able to join us.  The event will take place on Monday 2nd September 2019 at 1p.m.

    Wreath laying Service at Cairn Memorial, Trefil

    Tredegar Town Council make their annual visit to the Bomber Crash site at Cefn Yr Ystrad, Trefil where six brave young men lost their lives. They had set out from RAF Marham at 17.20 on 8th December 1940 in their Wellington Bomber heading towards Bordeaux, France. The raid was noted as a success with several targets being hit. On their return, the Bomber T2520 experienced bad weather and thick cloud which resulted in them being separated from the rest of the squadron. The basic and primitive instrumentation lead them off course and running low on fuel they began their descent; but instead of being over the lowlands of East Anglia they were heading towards the Brecon Beacons. The flight ended on 9th December 1940 at 3.12am on the rocky outcrop of Cefn Yr Ystrad to the north of Trefil village. There were no survivors.

    If you would like to visit this site and share in remembering the brave crew of young men please meet at Top House Trefil on Saturday 9th November 2019. We will depart, by mini bus, at 9.45am for the quarry followed by a short but strenuous walk to the Cairn where a short wreath laying ceremony and act of remembrance will take place.

    A warm welcome is extended to everyone but you should have a reasonable level of mobility and fitness and dress appropriately for the terrain and weather conditions.

    For further information call Tredegar Town Council on 01495 722352.

    9.30am The Top House, Trefil
