Accidents and Incidents
From the Pembrokeshire Telegraph of Wednesday 13th April 1949:
News of another arrival in the near future also comes this week, for Messrs Tillbrook have purchased the Sea Lord, a smaller class diesel powered trawler, which had only done a few trips. She is due at Milford shortly.
From the West Wales Guardian of Friday 11th January 1952:
The fleet of trawlers owned by Messrs. Tilbrook Trawlers Limited and A. J. Tilbrook have suspended operations, and we understand their management has now been taken over by Messrs. Peter Hancock and Sons, Limited.
The vessels concerned are the steam trawlers Sea Hunter and Dagon, and the two diesel engined trawlers Sea Lord and Sea Monarch. Upon enquiry the Managing Director, Mr. R. L. Hancock, stated that he could give no further information.
