The Salcombe Lifeboat Disaster 27 October 1916 £5.00 (Printer’s Second)

The tragic loss in 1916 of thirteen of the crew of the William and Emma lifeboat was one of the worst disasters in the history of the RNLI and had a devastating impact on the small community of Salcombe. Drawing on eye witness reports, including those of the two survivors, Roger Barrett gives a gripping account of the events that led up to the fatal capsize and of its sad aftermath.

Please note: this is a printer’s second reduced from £7.99 because some of the images are rather dark. The £7.99 version is out of print. All proceeds go to Salcombe RNLI
