William Williams VC

My new piece in the September edition of Welsh Country Magazine is the remarkable story of William Williams, awarded the Victoria Cross during World War One for his bravery whilst serving on a Q ship. These were decoy vessels designed to tempt German U boats to attack them. Indeed the ships would often slow down to make sure that a torpedo struck them. Then when the UU boat surfaced, the Q ship struck… William Williams is buried in Amlwch cemetery in Anglesey a neat and well tended grave which shelters within it an amazing story of courage and heroism far out in the middle of the cold sea. It is certainly a story we should never forget.
