Orkney`s Lifeboat Heritage

The seas around Orkney and the Pentland Firth are amongst the most dangerous and perilous of any in the world. He Volunteer lifeboat crews of Orkney have performed many incredible, courageous and daring rescues, manning the lifeboats to save lives from stricken vessels. This volume recounts all of the medal-winning rescues as well as the tragedy that saw eight Longhope lifeboatmen lose their lives. Comprehensively illustrated, it includes a section of outstanding colour images. It looks at the lifeboats of Longhope, Stromness, Kirkwall and Stronsay.
