 Accidents and Incidents

From the Haverfordwest & Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 27th May 1903:


    On Tuesday May 19th, whilst working off Bantry, the steam trawler "Lark", a new trawler belonging to Cardiff, was seen to be in a dangerous position close to the rocks, when her peril was observed by Captain G. C. Nichol, steam trawler "Agate" of Milford, who speedily went to her assistance, and after great difficulty managed to get her in tow and took her to sea, where after some hours she was able to get under her own command, and proceeded to her own port of Cardiff.  This is the third salvage case of recent date in which Captain G. C. Nichol has figured.
