Accidents and Incidents
From the The Cambrian, Swansea, of Friday 13th September 1878:
It is feared that during the early hours of Thursday morning last a vessel, in all probability a French one, foundered in the Bristol Channel, about eight miles E.N E of the Worm's Head. The master of the fishing smack Sarah Jane, of Tenby, Ratford Woods, owner, reports as follows: About half-past three, whilst fishing in the channel, the Worm's Head bearing E.N.E., distant about eight miles, distinctly heard screams as of distressed persons. Hove the vessel to, and burnt a flare-up; remained hove-to till night, when they looked about and found themselves in the midst of a quantity of wreckage, bedding, cabin furniture, &c. Amongst the articles picked up was the photograph of a French soldier in uniform, and a medical book in French. The night was very dark.
