From The Pembrokeshire Herald and General Advertiser of Friday 13th November 1903:
SALE OF STEAM TRAWLERS.- Yesterday, at the Lord Nelson Hotel, an important sale took place, the auctioneer being Mr. J. Ll. Davies. A large number of people had assembled, and some spirited bidding was witnessed. The first lot comprised 4 trawlers, viz. 'Ethel', 'Julia', 'Elsie' and 'Kathleen'. The bidding started at £9000 and eventually reached the sum of £12,820, the purchaser's name not being revealed. Lot 2 was the S.S. 'Florence' which started at £1000 and was knocked down to the same purchaser at £4,510. It is rumoured that a Hull firm were the purchasers of the vessels.
