Hello
I am looking to speak to any Somali seamen, ideally based in Cardiff, but across the UK would also be useful.
I am researching a project into the history of the Somalis in Cardiff, be very interested to speak to ex-Somali Seamen

Thanks
Wendy

Hi Wendy.
I have just read this post and wonder how you are going on the subject? A few years ago I was asked to trace an Somali Sailor and came up with the following information regarding(Mahmood) Hussein Matton and his death in 1946......
In 1946 Mahmood Hussein Mattan, a "Somali seaman", was hanged for murder. The Court of Appeal decided his conviction was unsafe and quashed it in 1998. A posthumous pardon was being sought I never found out if it was granted.
