Subdued heroes

V 80

Not an unusual sight along the coasts of UK and Ireland, especially in bad weather.
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), founded in 1824.
Queen Elizabeth II is patron of.the largest charity that saves lives at sea.
around the coasts of the UK and Ireland, as well as on some inland waterways.
Such as the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man are included too.

The RNLI is principally funded by legacies and donations,
with most lifeboat crew members being unpaid volunteers.

The Institution has saved about150,000 lives since its foundation.
At a cost of more than 600 lives lost in service.
