An Illustrated History….The lifeboat station at Whitby is one of the most famous in the country, and its Coxswains and crews have a record of gallantry second to none. This new book contains, for the first time in a single volume, a complete record of all of the Whitby lifeboats, from 1802 right up to 2008.Dramatic descriptions of the most epic rescues, such as that to the hospital ship Rohilla in 1914, are included, and all of the medal-winning services are given in-depth coverage. A selection of superb colour images showing the station’s current lifeboat George and Mary Webb, and the inshore lifeboat OEM Stone II, add to the impressive number of black and white historical images, many of which have never been published before.The most recent major event at the station, the opening of the impressive new lifeboat station in 2007, is fully covered, together with all of the many major events in the station’s past, such as the unique double naming of 1909, and the visits by the Duchess of Kent to name the station’s new lifeboats. The book has been written with the full co-operation of the Lifeboat Museum, which celebrates its 50th anniversary during 2008, and the lifeboat station officials.
