AUTHOR: Alan Salisbury
A History of the Torbay Lifeboats
A History of the Torbay Lifeboats
  • Description
  • Related

Over the years the RNLI has recognised and acknowledged the bravery of Torbay lifeboatmen with a total of 26 RNLI Brave-Awards, comprising one gold, six silver and nineteen bronze medals. From the launch of Torbays first purpose-built lifeboat this book traces the history of the boats, crews and rescues of those who followed in her wake.

Alan Salsbury is a ‘local’ man having been born, raised and educated in Paignton. Living on the outskirts of Torbay he undertakes work as a ‘volunteer speaker’ for the RNLI and has also written the histories of the Exmouth and Plymouth lifeboats stations.

When asked why he has written books devoted to the men, women and boats of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, he said “I do it out of the pure respect and admiration I have for the members of lifeboat crews, past and present. The quiet and unassuming manner in which they carry out their duties, often risking their own lives to save others, should be acknowledged and remembered.”
