From The Scotsman of 19th February 1917, p.7:
SERVICES OF MASTER OF A BELGIAN TRAWLER
The Board of Trade have awarded a piece of plate to Mr. Henri Beuren, master of the Belgian steam trawler Marie Louise, of Ostende, in recognition of his services to the shipwrecked crew of the fishing ketch W.A.H. of Lowestoft, whom he rescued in the Bristol Channel on the 30th January.
From the Haverfordwest and Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 13th March 1918:
MORE FISH RECORDS.
All records for the Milford port were broken yesterday. Only three steam trawlers arrived, but their gross sales realised a total of £9,500. They were as follows: Raymond, £3,700; Marguerite, £3,200; Marie Louise, £2,600. The first and second were far and away a record for anything in Wales.
