From the Haverfordwest & Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 3rd June 1914:


    On Friday another of the steam trawlers recently purchased was added to the fleet of Mr C. Curzon. She is the Emblem of Hull, a vessel of similar class to the Equity and was brought round by Capt. B. Blockwell, who is to act as ships husband for this fleet. Last night the crew left for Aberdeen to bring round the new trawler "Noogana" which was launched a few weeks ago for Messrs Brand & Co.
