This book focuses on RNLI lifesaving at Ramsgate from the early 1800s, through two World Wars and to the present day. Like many lifeboating communities, their volunteers, supporters and families have experienced times of bravery, fortune and loss. John and Vanessa have gathered records, personal accounts, words and pictures to bring this fascinating story to life.
