Doesn't appear to be much information on this, but I will look up a few books that I have - hopefully someone with detailed knowledge of Walmer lifeboats will post.

The Carnmoney obviously survived the incident, as she was sunk by U-Boat in 1917, about 150 miles off the West Coast of Ireland.

Ted,

Nothing in the books and seemingly nothing of a serious incident in Walmer Lifeboats 'Potted' History ..

http://www.walmer-lifeboat.org.uk/history.htm

Are you sure it was the Walmer lifeboat ... ?

Hi Ted,


My friends are the curators of the Deal Maritime Museum which holds many records of the North Deal, Walmer, and Kingsdown Lifeboats. Will drop them a line and see what they know of this incident.

Regards

Yuge

I am now intrigued by this as well .. !

It will be interesting to see if Locking Splice turns up any information.

.. and I agree that an incident such as reported, would have been well documented. It may of course be that it has and just hasn't found it's way into the digital age.

I suppose there is also a possibility that it was an error. I have looked at the Belfast Newsletter and it seems clear enough, but some stories find their way into fact, seemingly just because they are repeated - remember the 'Winter Time Change story' of childrens deaths in Scotland, (Orkney I think) that found it's way into fact & was much quoted for nearly 40 years, even in Parliament. Quite recently it was found to have been born from an 'illustration'.

Having recently done some research into the history of Walmer lifeboat it would appear that there is absolutely no trace of evidence in the archives of the RNLI for any tragic incident occurring to Walmer lifeboat or its crew for 1899 or 1900. There were only four members of the lifeboat crew who have ever died during their service with Walmer lifeboat station and these all occurred over many different years and on all separate occasions to the individuals.
