Joint team

joint team, originally uploaded by lifeboatjohn.

It is not uncommon to wish to be a part of something. Here you can see a small part of the lifeboat family in Swanage.

Though taken some time ago, this photo clearly shows what is needed, people wise, to help put a lifeboat to sea. From the left can be seen our local coastguard team. In the centre the Chairman of our branch and a number of the guild members. To their right, our ILB crew and on the Mersey our ALB crew. Of course, there is really a much larger team than this when you really delve into the fundraisers and support staff at headquarters, but this gives a flavour.

What does all this add up to? Well, a real sense for the crew, that when they are at sea, they are not on their own...........

Great team, John! And its sheer size surpasses some nation's navies.

Only just spotted your comments. This is not the latest picture of our team which, if anything is now bigger. I hope you are enjoying the new boat?
