Exiles Club Fridge Magnet
The Exiles Club logo in fridge magnet form.
Exiles was the name the Porthcurno telegraph workers gave themselves and dates back to 1870 and the first cable landing in Porthcurno. Coming mainly from urban backgrounds, they found themselves “exiled” in this remote Cornish valley and then “exiled” again to various distant telegraph stations around the world.
The Exiles Club was the social club based in Porthcurno, which still stands in the valley to this day. The logo features the Exiles Club Latin motto, Oceanus Non Dissociat: ‘Oceans Will Not Divide Us’. This motto reflects not only the service they provided through the telegraph cable network, but also a sense of global community and connectedness.
This same motto inspired our award-winning PK Morse Code Blanket – see the Gifts & Souvenirs section!
