-Welcome to Enwog o Fri, Ardal Ni.

0:00:420:00:45

-Welcome to our school,

-Ysgol Gynradd Bro Ingli.

0:00:450:00:49

-Where is Ysgol Bro Ingli?

0:00:500:00:52

-In Newport, Pembrokeshire,

-between Cardigan and Fishguard.

0:00:520:00:59

-Ysgol Bro Ingli is named after

-Carn Ingli, the mountain behind me.

0:01:020:01:08

-Newport lies

-between the 'mor' (sea)...

0:01:080:01:12

-..and the 'myny' (mountains).

0:01:120:01:15

-We're so lucky to live in such

-a beautiful and interesting place.

0:01:180:01:23

-People from near and far come

-to enjoy the views and take photos.

0:01:230:01:29

-This is Fishguard,

-not far from Newport.

0:01:320:01:36

-Here, with the Irish Sea

-behind us...

0:01:370:01:41

-..our story begins.

0:01:410:01:44

-Over 200 years ago, local soldiers

-would fire cannons...

0:01:520:01:57

-..to notify people of ships

-sailing into Fishguard harbour.

0:01:570:02:02

-The cannons were fired

-to warn people that the enemy...

0:02:030:02:07

-..the French,

-were sailing into the harbour.

0:02:070:02:11

-Our story is famous for the bravery

-of one local woman, Jemima Nicholas.

0:02:120:02:17

-So, let's travel back in time...

0:02:190:02:23

-..to met a heroine

-from our locality.

0:02:230:02:26

-The year is 1797 in Fishguard.

0:02:300:02:34

-Here she is - Jemima Nicholas.

0:02:360:02:39

-Hello, I'm Jemima. Jemima Nicholas.

0:02:400:02:44

-You can call me Jemima Fawr.

0:02:440:02:46

-I'm large and strong

-and I'm scared of nothing.

0:02:470:02:51

-Right, duty calls.

0:02:510:02:53

-Jemima was a shoemaker - she would

-spend her days making shoes.

0:02:530:02:58

-GUNFIRE

0:02:590:03:00

-Well, the Fishguard cannon

-is noisy tonight.

0:03:040:03:08

-Very strange.

0:03:080:03:09

-Jemima! Jemima! Where are you?

0:03:100:03:14

-Jemima, Jemima?

0:03:140:03:16

-French soldiers are approaching.

-The French have landed.

0:03:160:03:22

-Soldiers, help!

0:03:220:03:24

-Hush, steady on.

0:03:250:03:27

-Now, what did you say? French ships?

0:03:270:03:30

-You're making things up again.

0:03:300:03:33

-No, Jemima, I saw them.

0:03:340:03:37

-Neli Phillips said she'd seen ships

-sailing towards the harbour.

0:03:370:03:43

-The British flag

-could be seen on the ships...

0:03:450:03:49

-..but when the cannon was fired...

0:03:500:03:52

-..the French flag

-was raised aloft on each ship.

0:03:520:03:58

-They sailed around the corner.

0:03:580:04:01

-The French banner?

-Are you sure, Neli Phillips?

0:04:020:04:07

-Well, go home now,

-there's a good girl.

0:04:080:04:11

-They've gone, I'm sure of that.

0:04:110:04:13

-Cheerio.

0:04:140:04:15

-Cheerio.

0:04:150:04:17

-She has a lively imagination.

0:04:170:04:19

-But if French soldiers

-land on Welsh land...

0:04:200:04:24

-..I, Jemima Fawr, am ready

-to face the enemy, yes indeed.

0:04:240:04:30

-Not far from Fishguard harbour...

0:04:320:04:36

-..an army of French soldiers

-landed...

0:04:360:04:40

-..under the leadership

-of the American general, Tate.

0:04:400:04:44

-They all wore blue and were intent

-on conquering Britain.

0:04:440:04:50

-There, watching events unfold

-with shock, awe and fear...

0:04:510:04:55

-..was Thomas Williams.

0:04:560:04:57

-French soldiers.

0:04:580:05:00

-Goodness me, oh no!

0:05:000:05:03

-# Bonjour

0:05:070:05:08

-# Bonjour

0:05:080:05:11

-# We are French

0:05:110:05:12

-# Yes indeed, we're French, oui, oui

0:05:130:05:15

-# We've sailed all the way here

-from France

0:05:160:05:20

-# And we will conquer this country

-in no time

0:05:200:05:23

-# Hooray

0:05:230:05:26

-# I am the leader,

-General William Tate

0:05:270:05:31

-# I'm a strong American

-looking for a fight

0:05:320:05:35

-# Come on, men,

-from the sea to the land

0:05:350:05:39

-# We will own this land

-very, very soon

0:05:390:05:42

-# We're wild, we're mad,

-you can't handle us

0:05:430:05:47

-# We'll take your land

-and your property #

0:05:470:05:50

-With strong intentions,

-hundreds of soldiers set off...

0:05:570:06:01

-..to destroy and steal

-from local properties.

0:06:020:06:06

-In the meantime, not too far away...

0:06:060:06:09

-..Thomas Knox, a young,

-but very important local soldier...

0:06:090:06:15

-..was enjoying himself

-with a young girl.

0:06:150:06:18

-He had no idea

-about the French invasion.

0:06:190:06:22

-He had no intentions

-of working that night.

0:06:230:06:27

-A wonderful evening, darling.

0:06:270:06:29

-A wonderful evening, darling.

-

-He was enjoying himself too much.

0:06:290:06:32

-Until...

0:06:320:06:34

-Chief Officer Thomas Knox, come

-quickly. The French have invaded.

0:06:340:06:40

-What? I'm busy, Thomas Williams.

0:06:400:06:44

-There are hundreds of them.

0:06:450:06:46

-There are hundreds of them.

-

-Hundreds.

0:06:460:06:48

-They're like ants.

-They're on the beach and the rocks.

0:06:480:06:52

-Well, we have a problem then.

0:06:520:06:55

-What?

0:06:550:06:57

-What?

-

-We don't have enough soldiers.

0:06:570:06:59

-They're training.

0:06:590:07:00

-We're left with little choice but

-to gather soldiers from elsewhere.

0:07:010:07:07

-Let's hurry.

0:07:080:07:10

-What about our supper?

0:07:100:07:12

-Men!

0:07:120:07:15

-While Thomas Knox tried to gather

-enough soldiers together...

0:07:160:07:21

-..French soldiers

-were now running riot.

0:07:220:07:25

-They were drunk

-after stealing and drinking wine.

0:07:250:07:29

-It was a complete shambles.

0:07:320:07:34

-Jemima could hear

-a lot of noise outside.

0:07:350:07:39

-She saw a local farmer

-running towards her.

0:07:400:07:43

-He was injured and in shock.

0:07:430:07:47

-Henry, look at you.

0:07:480:07:51

-What happened?

0:07:510:07:53

-French soldiers, Jemima.

0:07:530:07:55

-It's true then.

0:07:550:07:58

-Yes, the farm is a shambles.

0:07:580:08:00

-There's no other choice. Jemima

-Fawr will teach them a lesson.

0:08:010:08:06

-I have an idea.

0:08:060:08:08

-Make way for Jemima and her crew.

0:08:080:08:13

-# Come on, local people

0:08:170:08:20

-# Jemima Fawr needs your help,

-she's not happy at all

0:08:200:08:24

-# She's ready to face the French

0:08:240:08:28

-# She's so determined,

-she fears no-one

0:08:280:08:32

-# Come on, local women, join me

0:08:350:08:38

-# We'll wear red and black

0:08:390:08:41

-# With our weapons, we'll battle on

0:08:420:08:45

-# The French, oh, yes, oui, oui

0:08:460:08:48

-# Come on, local people

0:08:510:08:54

-# Jemima Fawr needs your help,

-she's not happy at all

0:08:540:08:57

-# She's ready to face the French

0:08:580:09:01

-# She's so determined,

-she fears no-one #

0:09:010:09:06

-I fear no-one! I'm Jemima Nicholas.

0:09:060:09:09

-Jemima Nicholas!

0:09:090:09:12

-Follow me.

0:09:170:09:19

-I don't fear the French.

0:09:190:09:22

-Jemima! Jemima!

0:09:230:09:26

-Jemima!

0:09:260:09:27

-They were being led by Jemima.

-They marched like soldiers.

0:09:280:09:34

-As Jemima

-and the red ladies marched...

0:09:350:09:38

-..French soldiers watched in awe.

0:09:390:09:43

-They thought it was a garrison

-from the British army.

0:09:430:09:48

-When they saw them marching

-wearing red and black...

0:09:490:09:54

-Non, non, non.

0:09:550:09:56

-Non, non, non.

-

-Sacre bleu.

0:09:560:09:57

-What on earth?

0:09:570:09:58

-Non, non, non, sacre bleu.

0:10:030:10:05

-What's wrong?

0:10:050:10:06

-What's wrong?

-

-British soldiers everywhere.

0:10:060:10:08

-They're ready to attack.

0:10:090:10:11

-Are you sure?

0:10:110:10:12

-Are you sure?

-

-Yes. I saw them.

0:10:120:10:14

-Knox is still trying

-to gather soldiers together.

0:10:140:10:20

-No, no, British soldiers.

-They're everywhere.

0:10:200:10:25

-In the meantime,

-on went Jemima and the ladies.

0:10:270:10:32

-She stopped suddenly.

0:10:320:10:34

-Wait. I can smell something.

0:10:340:10:38

-Food. Stay right here.

0:10:380:10:40

-Jemima marched towards the soldiers

-as they cheered.

0:10:430:10:48

-Hush! I've caught you.

0:10:480:10:52

-So I have,

-all of you drinking and feasting.

0:10:530:10:57

-Come with me.

0:10:570:10:59

-Away!

0:11:030:11:04

-Jemima Nicholas confronted

-the soldiers all on her own.

0:11:050:11:09

-She chased them like sheep

-all the way to Fishguard...

0:11:100:11:13

-..where they were locked up.

0:11:130:11:15

-The party's over.

0:11:170:11:19

-Little babies.

0:11:190:11:20

-Shush! Little babies.

0:11:250:11:27

-You stink - the party is over.

0:11:270:11:30

-Yes, Jemima Fawr

-captured 12 French soldiers...

0:11:380:11:43

-..all on her own.

0:11:430:11:45

-Soon after, Williams Tate

-called off the invasion.

0:11:460:11:51

-Here, in the Royal Oak,

-Fishguard...
