 Accidents and Incidents:

From the Haverfordwest and Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 4th September 1907:

News has been received in Milford to the effect that the steam liner "Effort", of this port, has foundered, and the crew of eight men were landed at Fleetwood on Sunday by a Fleetwood trawler.  The men are expected home tonight, and no further information as to the loss of the liner has yet come to hand.

The "Effort" is a craft that has sailed in and out of Milford for very many years.  The owner was Captain Matthew Nicholas of Dale, and the vessel was managed by Messrs. Kinnard and Company.
