         Accidents and Incidents:


From The Haverfordwest and Milford Haven Telegraph on Wednesday 13th May 1914:





    The Milford Haven Sessions were held on Wednesday before Col. W. R. Roberts (chairman), Messrs G. H. D. Birt, J. B. Gaskell, and D. G. Jones.


    Robert Barnes, cook on a steam trawler, was charged with stealing a tin of syrup, 2lb jar of jam, a tin  of metal polish, and three tins of dripping, from the steam trawler Dee, of the total value of 4s., the property of Mr Charles E. Curzon, trawler owner. Mr Curzon was present in court.

    Henry George, a watchman in the employ of Mr Curzon, Milford Docks, said on Wednesday, the 29th ult, he was watching the trawler Dee. The defendant was a cook on board, and be saw him leave about half-past six. He saw he had a frail, and he said he had only clothes in it. On examining it witness found the articles enumerated, which were the property of Mr Curzon. Witness took possession of the things. Prisoner said the dripping belonged to him.

    Defendant said he was under the impression the dripping was his; some firms allowed it to the cooks, and others did not.

    Charles Munnings, ship's husband, Hakin Point, said he had never at any time given the defendant permission to take anything off the boat. The next morning after this occurred, he discharged defendant.

    By Col. Roberts: He did not know of any practice for the cook to have the dripping. The defendant had been three trips.

    Defendant pleaded not guilty, and gave evidence on oath. He had, he said, been in Milford 16 years, and had never robbed anyone of a penny. It was his habit to go aboard on the day before leaving to overhaul his stores, and if he found anything wrong he took them back and changed them. He was doing this when the watchman stopped him. Turning to the ship's husband, the defendant asked, Isn't that right, Mr Munnings? and when that gentleman shook his head, defendant retorted "You're a liar. Didn't I say give us a pass, and you said you hadn't any paper; now act fair. When I went down to the ship, Mr Munnings said 'Don't go aboard that ship,' and I said 'Why not?' and he said, 'You like getting three I months,' and I told him he was talking out of the back of his neck."

    Defendant was fined 20s and costs.
