Centenary service for SS Milly

A special centenary service at the Golden Lion, Port Isaac to mark the 100th anniversary of the SS Milly, a merchant steamer sunk by German U-Boat action in World War One, was the centrepiece of a day of celebration in remembrance of the entire crew and especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice for King and country.

The service, at 6pm on Thursday 6th September, was be led by the Reverend Dr Elizabeth Wild, Rector at North Cornwall Cluster of Churches, at the Golden Lion in Port Isaac. Retired Commodore Jamie Miller spoke about the importance of rememberance and the SS Milly.

While the service itself formed a fitting and sober reminder of the consequences of war, the day itself –  planned by Golden Lion landlords Marc and Beth Kendall – was designed to be a wider celebration of the contributions made by local people to the war effort.

SS Milly, a 3000-ton British steamer, was built in 1904 by Sunderland ship builders William Gray & Co. and requisitioned for war transport work in 1914. On September 6th 1918, on a voyage from Brest to Barry, the armed merchant ship was torpedoed and sunk by German U-Boat Karl Petri (UB-87) south west of Tintagel Head, with the loss of two young mariners’ lives.

Kit & McConnel

We’re thrilled to present an evening of unbridled cabaret from ferociously witty Kit Hesketh-Harvey (formerly of Kit and the Widow fame) and his pianistic sparring partner James McConnel: a twenty-first century Flanders and Swann who compose and perform on any subject from Jeremy Corbyn to wet wipes. No foible of modern life will go unmocked, no hideous new practice be spared. You may wince with recognition or glance nervously to see if your companion is shocked but we defy you not to laugh. Both consummate musicians and composers whose biographies read like music royalty, Kit & McConnel bring us a hilarious cabaret double-act like no other.
