 Accidents and Incidents


From the Haverfordwest & Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 24th June 1914:



    The new steam trawler Noogana, which was recently launched from the yard of Messrs Hall, Russell & Co., Aberdeen, landed her maiden cargo at the Fish Market on Wednesday. She is a fine craft and is fitted with all the latest and best machinery and trawling gear, and will be a valuable addition to Messrs Brand & Co.'s fleet. She is of the same class as the Koorah, Narana and W. H. Podd, owned and managed by the same company. The same day the steam trawler "Numitor" of Ostend landed a cargo of fish at the Market.
