Falmouth Lifeboat: 150 years of saving lifves at sea 1867-2017
David Barnicoat and Simon Culliford
Falmouth lifeboat station celebrated its 150th anniversary during the summer with a gathering of old lifeboats and other events (see p.12), and this impressive new book has been published to detail the station’s century and a half of operations. Running to 208 pages, it details all the lifeboats that have served the station, as well as the coxswains and the famous rescues. It is profusely illustrated with many unusual photos of Falmouth’s lifeboats, and has been well researched and is highly recommended. NL
