 Accidents and Incidents

From the Milford Haven Telegraph, of 14th February 1906:


    The steam trawler “Hindustan”, belonging to Messrs. Houston, Davies & Company, sprang a leak about eight o’clock on the evening of Tuesday week, and two hours later sank off the Saltees Rocks about 30 miles south-west of the Smalls Lighthouse.  The crew were fortunately picked up by the Milford steam trawler “Fuchsia” (Sellick, Morley & Price) and landed at Milford on Wednesday morning.  The “Hindustan”, at the time of the disaster, was on her way back to her home port of Milford with a good catch of fish, and had about 90 kits of hake aboard.
