The RNLI saves lives at sea.

James & Lucy Jack

Picture of james & lucy jack.

james and lucy were my parents [1914-2004 & 1924-2002 resp]

they brought me up in anstruther, fife, scotland. dad served on the local lifebots 'nellie and charlie', 'james and ruby jackson', 'the doctors' from 1947 to 1974, the last 14 years as coxswain, a much respected lifeboatman in the community.

together they spread the word by giving lectures about the rnli; dad talking about his experiences [some tragic, some funny], mum showing slides and telling the history of the service.

In 1978 they moved to mariners' park, wallasey, to be near their grandchildren, and continued their lectures there.

the rnli was a large part of their life, and through it they made many good friends.

the rnli is a large part of my beloved memories of two wonderful people.
