Royal National Life-Boat Institution Old Postcard In The Nick of Time - Lifeboat
Vintage Colour Art Artist Drawn Old Postcard. Lifeboat. Royal National Life-Boat Institution. Head Office : 22 Charing Cross Road, London. Ship Ships Shipping.
In The Nick of Time. - The scene in the picture illustrates an incident which is by no means uncommon in the arduous work of the Heroes of the Sea. A vessel has got aground on some outlying sands, and has been almost battered to pieces by mountainous waves before the Life-Boat could reach her, after a terrific struggle against wind and waves. Too often the majority of the crew have been swept away, and the survivors are found lashed to the rigging, exhausted by exposure, and are rescued from the jaws of death.
Over 56,000 lives have been saved since 1924. The Institution receives no subsidy from the State. The Life-Boat service is The Red Cross of The Sea. Published by The Whitefriars Press Ltd. London and Tonbridge
