Memorial Chapel of Saint Peter

This chapel was built with funds collected by the Ladies`Harbour Lights Guild to the greater glory of God and to commemorate the brave and faithful men of the Mercantile Marine who gave their lives in the Great War

They are too near to be great,
but our children shall understand,
when and how our fate,
was changed and by whose hand.
