Appledore’s new lifeboat

Appledore’s new lifeboat, which has undergone engine trials, will, it is hoped, be ready to leave the yards of her Isle of Wight builders next month. Provisional date for delivery is 15 May. Travelling to the Isle of Wight to fetch her will probably be Coxswain Sydney Cann, the mechanic Mr Leon Richards and Capt. Pat Brennan (local secretary of the R.N.L.I.). Provisional date for the naming ceremony is 27 June. She will be handed over by Sir Eric Seal, representing the committee of management.
