The term ‘British Merchant Navy’ was not formally adopted until 1928 when King George V made the Prince of Wales ‘Master of the Merchant Navy and Fishing Fleets’. The term however was in common usage well before then. Not all sailors in vessels registered under the British flag were British. Crews originated from all over the world and on some vessels British nationals were in a minority. In 1915, some 668 were born in Nova Scotia, including those listed above we have identified as being from Yarmouth Town and County.
