 Accidents and Incidents


From The Pembrokeshire Herald and General Advertiser of Friday 17th June 1870:




..............   But, besides fish, the trawls often bring up large anchors, quantities of firewood, and other debris of wrecks.  One day last week the Charles Pierce netted so large a quantity of blubber-fish that the beam could hardly be drawn up on deck.

    The number of trawlers which at present make Tenby their head-quarters is about thirty and upwards of one hundred men are employed.
