     More Wreckage Found In Bomber Search

    A search which began in St. George's Channel last September for the wreckage of a Ministry of Supply Victor bomber has brought to light 14 pieces of wreckage in the past three days.  The aircraft crashed while on a test flight last August.  The debris has been recovered by the Milford Haven trawler Clyne [ sic ], which has been charted for the search conducted by the Admiralty.    .............



From the West Wales Guardian of Friday 10th February 1961:


    Three Milford trawlers which took part in the search for the missing V-bomber off the coast of Pembrokeshire have vanished from the local scene.  The Agnes Nutten was scrapped some time ago, the Clyne Castle is being broken up at Messrs. R. S. Hayes' Yard, Pembroke Dock, and the William Wilson has been sold to an East Coast firm.
