The Royal National Lifeboat Institution was established in 1824, and has a long and proud tradition of saving life at sea; nowhere is this more evident than in the south-east of England. The lifeboats and lifeboat crews from Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Kent have been involved in some of the most dramatic, courageous and daring rescues in the history of the RNLI, and this book provides details of all the famous rescues and the work of the lifeboats in the South East. The RNLI currently operates twenty-seven lifeboat stations in the south-east of England, and this comprehensive book has details of every one, with information about their history, rescues and current lifeboats. It also includes details of old stations that have been closed, as well as the four new lifeboat stations operating on the River Thames. Author Nicholas Leach has amassed a wealth of information about the lifeboats and lifeboat stations of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Kent, past and present, visiting everyone to provide a complete and up-to-date record of life-saving in the seas off East Anglia, the Thames Estuary and the Dover Straits.
