90th Anniversary Commemoration

Gallery Two

Having created the first gallery page I realised that I had more to add and have therefore added this second page to mark the 90th anniversary of the loss of the Rohilla and one of the most dramatic sea rescues ever to take place off the Yorkshire coast. It was the perfect to pay tribute to the RNLI lifeboat men who battered through colossal seas to rescue those trapped aboard the stranded vessel.
