From an unknown local newspaper dated c.Thursday 7th April 1938:


    J. F. Gwyther has been favoured with instructions to offer for sale at the Conservative Club, on Friday 15th September, the steam trawlers Alonzo, Cairo and Gozo.  These ships are of the ex-fleeter type, strongly built, and the class suitable of pareja (pair fishing, Spanish style.)
