160pp, illustrations, colour and b/w. The Humber lifeboat station is unique. It is manned by a full-time paid crew who live, with their wives and families, on the isolated Spurn peninsula in Yorkshire, ready to put out immediately to help seafarers in distress. In 2010 Humber lifeboat celebrated 200 years of service. Founded in 1810 by Trinity House of Kingston-upon-Hull, the station was taken over by the RNLI in 1911, and has since become one of the most famous in the British Isles.
