St Winwaloe was the founder and first abbot of Landévennec Abbey
 just south of Brest, France. The person is me on my way to see if
we could get in the church.

The SS Gairsoppa was a British steam merchant ship that saw service during the Second World War. She sailed with several convoys, before joining Convoy SL 64. Running low on fuel, she left the convoy and headed for Galway, Ireland, but was torpedoed and sunk by a German U-boat.
