Cromer Lifeboats 1804-2004

£7.99

Product description

Note: Book dimensions in centimetres
Yellow highlighter on page 180

"Since 1804, a lifeboat has been stationed at Cromer ready to go to the aid of ships in distress off the Norfork coast and to help people in difficulty in the dangerous waters of the North Sea. The coxswains and crews who have manned the Cromer lifeboat have a record of gallantry second to none, and are famous for their daring rescues and lifesaving exploits over two centuries.

The most famous figure in the station's history is Coxswain Henry Blogg, who was unique for being awarded the RNLI's Gold Medal three times and is often described as the most famous of all lifeboatmen in the history of the lifeboat service. His feats and those of the crews that came both before and after him are recounted in this comprehensive book which, for the first time in one volume, encompasses the complete history of the station from its establishment up to present day. Today's lifeboat crews continue the tradition of rescue at sea in the twenty-first century."
