Accidents and Incidents:

From the West Wales Guardian of Friday 9th July 1948:


    As we reported last week, the three Yolland Brothers vessels, Concertator, Tenedos and George Adgell left last weekend for Lowestoft.  Their places will however be filled by new vessels, and at least four have already been named.  These are Crabber type boats of 100 to 115 feet in length and one of them, the Loch Rannoch (Tilbrook Trawlers), is already in port.  The others of the same class, expected within a week or so, are the Tresco (W. Uglow), St. Lucia (Haven Trawlers), and Framlingham (Yolland Brothers), and there will also probably be two more crabbers not yet named.
