Lifeboat Launching.

Robin Hoods Bay rowing lifeboat about to be launched, with some eight crew members all wearing cork life-jackets, This postcard view  dated from 1905. The Archive asked: ”Can you help with the name of the Lifeboat.” Raymond Pennock advises: ”The “Mary Ann Lockwood” replaced the “Ephraim and Hannah Fox” in 1902. The life-boatman nearest the bow in a life-jacket is my Great Grandfather; Thomas Storm, (’Shoemaker Tom’) to identify him from others of the same name!”

  • “Mary Ann Lockwood” replaced the “Ephraim and Hannah Fox” in 1902. The life-boatman nearest the bow in a life-jacket is my Great Grandfather Thomas Storm,(‘Shoemaker Tom’) to identify him from others of the same name!
