Lifeboats on the Back of the Wight
Can anyone tell me anything about the old lifeboats that used to opperate on the Back of the Wight (The SW coast) in days of yore?
My grandfathers brother, and several other kin served in the Atherfield lifeboat. One, Rufus Cotton I believe, was the coxwain on her for many years.
There were also lifeboats at Brook and Brighstone I think.
