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.

St Minver Pet Service

In what is thought to be a first for St Minver, the Pet Blessing Service on 10 June brought together people of all ages including the choir from the St Minver Primary school, many with their pets. The Service, led by Marcus Jones, encouraged people to praise all of God’s creation and to give thanks for the joys and responsibilities of owning a pet as well as remembering all those, like vets, who care
for animals.

All the congregation including the pets, mostly dogs but also a cat, guinea pigs and even newts, seemed appreciative and were well behaved. Certainly none of them disturbed
the harmony by attacking another!

Reference was made to St Francis of Assisi whose respect for all creatures as sharing, alongside the human race, in God’s love, helped to change traditional Christian teaching to accept the universality of the natural world and our interdependence.

Part of the collection, just under £100, was given to the St Francis Home for Animals, a dog rescue centre near Newquay that takes in stray and other unwanted dogs, cares for them and places them with suitable new owners to provide them with a happy home for life. The Home has thanked the Church for their generosity and for promoting love and respect for our fellow creatures.
