         Accidents and Incidents

From The Pembrokeshire Herald and General Advertiser of Friday 11th April 1902:

 

TENBY

......

    ACCIDENT ON A TRAWLER.- George Turner Lewis, a member of the crew of the trawler Annie belonging to Mr. George Rowe, was landed on Friday, for medical attention. Lewis was engaged in heaving up the trawl, and whilst doing so the handle of the winch which he was working flew back and struck him a terrific blow on the fore-head, inflicting a serious scalp wound. He was attended to by Dr. Knowling and afterwards taken home, where he is said to be progressing favourably. It is somewhat singular that the father of Lewis who was also a fisherman and well-known in Tenby was struck in a similar manner on board his vessel, the handle of the winch on that occasion striking him on the nose. He was much disfigured during the remainder of his life. Fortunately, the accident to his son is not likely to have such an effect.
