An old photo of the New Brighton lifeboat. I remember the Lifeboatmen drinking in the Perch Rock in New Brighton. A loud bang would be heard and the men would run out to the boat. There would always be more than was required to man the boat. The crest fallen lads who weren't on the boat would trudge back to the Pub. George, the manager would save their pints until they returned. I had a lot of respect for thoses brave guys.

Bravery and dedication right in front of your eyes, I've ignored a lot of charity tins in my time but I've never and never will ignore the Lifeboat tin. If there's one service that shouldn't be a charity, its this one.

So very true Bert. I disagree with the charity thing though. I want them to know how much we appreciate them

My appreciation wouldn't wane no matter how they were funded.
Never understood how one of our emergency services should have to rely on charity. Still, stranger things happen at sea, as they say.

Tis a bit odd. I wonder why they were never brought under the Navys wing?

Pablo, I don't know the answer to that but I sleep safe in the knowledge that I won't wake up in the mornings with half the Lifeboats gone due to cutbacks. However a very large noninterference government donation wouldn't go amiss.

Two bangs or maroons to give them the official title Pablo. When they went off, you would hear men running down Egerton street, maybe a motorbike or two roaring down and occasionally a car. Lifeboat house was 99 Egerton street.

I've been on that boat in the photograph and know most of the names but can't see them fully.

George Crockford had the Perch in those days and it was just about the best Pub around.

Quite a number of my ancestors served on it plus one uncle who is still alive.

A tricky situation maybe? If HMG assisted the Lifeboats financially in any way, it could have a effect on folks willing to pop the shekels in the tins. Like you Bert, the RNLI always get my dosh above a lot of others.

More advertising on what these selfless heroes do maybe ??

Re the photo, that could be Bill Morris, extreme right. Never was on that boat, but was on Norman B Corlett a few times.

Nice one Helles. I couldn't remember Georges other name. I remember his slicked back hair. It was certainly the best Pub back then. Had a few stay behinds there with the Lifeboatmen. Not been in there for a while. There were a few car drivers in the Perch and a lot of times they used to drive them down there. Nice memories

That's so true Bert. Bloody cutting back on all the important stuff

Even blowing it up I can only recognise George Cross and George Stonall. Wasn't familiar with all the names though. Did know Bill Morris, he was the Coxswain but can't point him out.

I was mechanic at new brighton 1972-1976 my duties were to make sure that the tractor and boat were available at all times, the boat then was an atlantic 21 which was not a convential boat as shown above,short story,strolling to new brighton lifeboat station one beautiful july morning 1974,i opened the big door where the boat was kept,put the lights on,, and the place had been ransacked,but sadly the lifeboat station collection box had been forced open and contents taken,which could have been quite a lot,being the summer.The person or persons who did this i curse daily.
