Accidents and Incidents
From the West Wales Guardian of Friday 9th July 1948:
As we reported last week, the three Yolland Brothers vessels, Concertator, Tenedos and George Adgell left last weekend for Lowestoft. Their places will however be filled by new vessels, and at least four have already been named. These are Crabber type boats of 100 to 115 feet in length and one of them, the Loch Rannoch (Tilbrook Trawlers), is already in port. The others of the same class, expected within a week or so, are the Tresco (W. Uglow), St. Lucia (Haven Trawlers), and Framlingham (Yolland Brothers), and there will also probably be two more crabbers not yet named.
From the West Wales Guardian of Friday 17th December 1948:
Twenty-one out of Milford's fleet of ninety-two trawlers are now idle, six of the smaller class boats having tied up this week owing to the present uneconomic trading conditions. On the face of it this is a very gloomy Christmas picture, but beneath it all is a feeling of confidence in the industry.
Owners of the eight trawlers tying up this week - Lord Cecil, Loyal Star, Cassiopeia, Poseidon, Constant Star, Framlingham, Lavenham and Lord Anson - will be taking the opportunity during the present "low" in the industry to repair and re-equip their vessels, and it is good to know that two of the ships which have tied up, the Ellesmere (Crescent Company) and Milford Prince (Milford Trawling Company), have been crewing up, and will return to sea again within a day or two after a six week stoppage.
From the West Wales Guardian of Friday 25th April 1952:
The trawler Norrard, one of the smaller vessels belonging to Messrs. Goodleigh Fisheries, has this week gone to the breakers' yard at Pill Point, bringing the total of trawlers scrapped during the past year to eight.
She was preceded by the Phoebe, Ellesmere, Tresco, Lavenham, Framlingham, St.Vincent and Ocean Shield. All these vessels were seaworthy but had become uneconomical to run.
