Radio Course picture

A relief Lifeboat arrived at Walmer on the 2nd September whilst the Duggie Rodbard is away for refit.

The donar of The Doris and Harry is someone quite unique. Harry Patch is the last surviving veteran from the British Expeditionary Force sent to Northern France during the First World War and is now an incredible 110 years old. The Dororthy and Harry was donated to the RNLI in 2007 and funded from the proceeds of Harry's memoirs (spanning not just his WW1 experiences but his entire life). The Last Fighting Tommy (ISBN 10: 0747593361) recently published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC. is a very interesting read and well worth a look.
