90th Anniversary Commemoration

Gallery Three

This is the third gallery page for the commemoration celebration held in October 2004. As the most dramatic rescues to have occurred off the Yorkshire coast the service of commemoration was an eventful day enjoyed by a large number of people. The weather had been poor throughout the preceding week, but thankfully dry and bright even if a little chilly.
