 Accidents and Incidents

From the Haverfordwest & Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 7th December 1904:


    The fine new steamers recently built to the order of Milford's Mr. G. H. D. Birt, have both made their initial trip to the port in the course of the last few days.  The "Anglia" (Captain Nightingale) landed on Thursday with a good catch, which realised about 240.  The "Dania" (Captain Huddlestone) came in for Monday's market, and considering that, on account of the wild weather at sea catches were generally on the small side, she made a successful maiden voyage.
