Heroines and Heroes

Jemima Nicholas is usually the first to come to mind when thinking of local heroines/heroes and indeed history tells us that the town of Fishguard had good reason to be grateful to Jemima for her bravery and tenacity during the French Invasion.

Over the years however, there have been numerous other local people who have also carried out brave acts, putting themselves in danger in an attempt to save the lives of others. In this section we have included articles about some of these brave individuals - if you know of someone who you think should be included please let us know!
