On manouvres in the 1990's

By Laurie Stonehouse

These photographs show the "Keith Anderson" number 52-32, moored up in the harbour and on various manouvres.   Some were maybe just training exercises, or possibly actual rescues during the 1990's.

Interesting pictures. My late mother was taken on the Keith Anderson for burial at sea. I can't praise the crew enough for that sad day. Coxwain was a Mr Paddy Boyle. It was that day which prompted me to join the RNLI as a life governor. Great men doing a great job!

The 'smaller vessel' is actually Brighton Lifeboat. An Atlantic 21 class lifeboat which was based in Brighton Marina. We regularly exercised with Newhaven Lifeboat (and still do). I believe the rest of the photos show a 'Medical exercise' in progress with casualties wrappped in foil blankets and one in a basket stretcher.

Yep so was I, started in 1961. We lived in Acacia Road Denton then moved up to Wellington Road. Always had some fun working with your dad, especially riding with him on the BSA 250 combo, you havn't lived till you have spent time on a motorcycle and side car.
