Accidents and Incidents
From the Haverfordwest & Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 28th October 1903:
While at sea, an accident occurred on board the "Harfat Castle", by which the mate, Thomas Wood, sustained a fractured leg. The vessel arrived in dock at Milford on Friday afternoon. Wood was brought ashore and removed to the new infirmary, where his injuries were attended to. We believe this was the first time the ambulance car was used.
[ "Harfat" was the Pembrokeshire dialect name for Haverfordwest. Until the mid twentieth century, the town was affectionately known as "Honey Harfat". ]
