Accidents and Incidents
From the West Wales Guardian of Friday 15th October 1954:
Mr. Leslie Yolland, Camelot House, Wellington Road, Hakin, one of the principals of Messrs. Yolland Brothers, returned on Tuesday after a ten day trip on the drifter-trawler Trier. A good sailor, he did not miss a meal despite the very considerable tossing that goes with this smaller class of vessel.
From the West Wales Guardian of Friday 29th April 1955:
The drifter trawler Trier (Messrs. Yolland Brothers) has left for Belgium for breaking up.
