 Accidents and Incidents

From the Haverfordwest and Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 18th October 1916:



    On Thursday news was received that William Reynolds, cook on the smack Majestic, had been drowned at Dunmore, Ireland. It appears that he must have been ashore and went down to get back to his ship, but was missed and his body was afterwards picked up. At the inquest a verdict of "Accidentally drowned" was returned. Deceased was perhaps better known as "Billy Venables," and was for many years with Mr R. Venables, driving the Dale mail cart. The body was brought borne for interment on Saturday.
