The Story of the St Davids Lifeboats is launched

St Davids RNLI are pleased to announce the publication of the latest edition of “The Story of the St Davids Lifeboats” by Dr George Middleton.

The book was first published in the early 1970’s and told the history of the station from its opening in 1869 when a rowing and sailing lifeboat was kept on a carriage in the centre of St Davids. It also covers the tragic events of 1910 when the lifeboat Gem and three of her crew were lost in Ramsey Sound and the various award winning rescues performed by the crews over the 140 years that the station has been open. This latest version brings to story right up-to-date in 2009.

Thanks to the sponsorship of several local companies all proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the St Davids Branch of the RNLI.

The book is available from Dr George Middleton, 52 Bryn Road, St Davids, Pembrokeshire, SA62 6QU priced at £3.00 including P&P for one copy or £5.50 for two copies.

Copies are also available from St Davids Bookshop, 5a The Pebbles, St Davids or directly from the lifeboat station at St Justinians.
