100 years ago next October, there was a disaster when 13 of the crew
of the Salcombe lifeboat were lost at sea. Salcombe is in south Devon, UK. One of my aunties remembered
this when she was a child. In those days these brave men rowed out in very rough seas. The RLNI has a book out soon about the disaster. At the time, the event was devastating on Salcombe.
