Accidents and Incidents
From the Haverfordwest & Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 11th November 1914:
BELGIAN TRAWLERMAN'S ACCIDENT.
On the arrival of the Ostend steam trawler, Odetta [sic], No. 152, in the docks, one of the engineers named C. Korvelling, was landed and taken to Dr. Griffith's surgery. It appears that whilst dropping anchor, the chain struck Korvelling's fore arm with such force as to cause a severe fracture. He also received injuries to his chest and shin, and after being attended to by Dr. Rice he was taken to the Bethel where, under the care of Mr and Mrs Simpson, he is receiving every attention. His wife is amongst the number of Belgians residing in Haverfordwest.
