SS Sargasso Jul 1917 Trinidad Citizens' Contingent (6th)

SS Sargasso Jul 1917 Trinidad Citizens' Contingent (6th)

Travelling from the West Indies, the ship arrived July 1917. The Barbados Citizens’ Contingent Committee was formed about the end of November 1915, and the original promoters of the movement were Messrs Dudley G Leacock, FAC Collymore and RG Cave. A similar committee was set up in Trinidad. The primary object of the Committees was to enable men of respectable parentage to proceed to England to join His Majesty’s Forces – either the Royal Navy or English fighting regiments, and thus to take their part in the Great War.
