Jamaica Planter

A Memory of Barry Dock

I have been told some information about the Jamaica Planter which was sunk off the Port of Barry, but cannot remember all the details. Is anyone able to help me? My father-in-law was aboard her on the two occasions she came in to the Port to be repaired. He was discharged from her company before she was holed the third time, thus surviving to marry and father five children, four of whom survive him!
Sincerely,
Caroline Scott.
