I could not find an english version of the Welsh note on Gwilym y Rhos. Perhaps my failure. But if not there, I think it would be worth producing. I have recently been shown by a local historian friend  a translation of his piece about the Rhoshirwaun Coal Mine - an amusing local mining enterprise which I had mentioned coming across in the mining records.

I really enjoyed your list of Seamans Bars around the world.
I frequented many of them on my two Merchant ships in 1958 and 1960. It was great fun to see those names from my youth.

The Club Mauna Loa in my home port of San Francisco still is going strong and has a guest register dating back to the 40s and 50s.

You mentioned gaps on the west coast of South America.
Where can I submit names of bars from those ports?

Dear Tony and Gwenllian,
For over twenty years our family enjoyed holidays at Llwynfor; then the property was sold. I look hungrily at what the house has become; from one-time hostel for mine workers, I believe, to a
'luxury' holiday home.

I hope 2015 is being good for you.

There was no Contact or home to find Rhiw so I gave a mention to it in bibliography under technical paper and credited it to (Rhiw/Web).
Now researching the ss Agamemnon I came across your site once more, THIS time with a contact address.
So Thank you belatedly.

Love your entries on Blue Flue, dad's family are from Ynys Mon. My grandfather was in deep sea sail and the occasional steamship, until he became a 1st mate on the Garston dredgers in 1910. He sailed on one BF to China and Vladivostock. His eldest son, sailed as an AB, on several BF ships. Once asked my dad, who was a chief engineer, why he didn't sail with the company. He said the trips were too long. Yet he ended up sailing for Booth, six and twelve months long. Dad who went to sea early 1939, had problems with his nerves and was quite irascible. I think he would have found a high profile company difficult, even though, his family were from Ynys Mon and he was Liverpool Welsh.



Diolch yn fawr i bawb am eich sylwadau  / Many thanks to you all for your comments
