Accidents and Incidents
From The Pembrokeshire Herald and General Advertiser of Friday 5th December 1902:
Whilst out at sea the "Walwyn's Castle" picked up the other day a full sized boat, which has been duly landed at Milford. It bears no name, and from the fact that the thwarts were broken away, it seems likely that it has been broken a way from some ship during the gale.
From The Pembrokeshire Herald and General Advertiser of Friday 27th January 1905:
FIRE ON A CASTLE LINE TRAWLER.— On Monday morning a fire broke out on board the steam trawler 'Walwyn's Castle', lying in the South Dock basin, Swansea. The brigade was soon on the spot and found the captain's cabin well alight. A copious supply of water quickly extinguished the flames, and the damage was confined to the cabin and a bulkhead. The cause is said to have been hot stove pipes coming in contact with the woodwork.
