Accidents and Incidents

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.
