A Lerwick Lifeboatman's Story

The history of the Lerwick lifeboat station, the lifeboats, the dedicated volunteer crews, the personalities and the courageous rescues have been recorded by George Leith together with many personal reflections in this book.

George Leith never forgot the day the first Lerwick lifeboat arrived in Shetland when his father took him down to the pier for a trip round the harbour. Nineteen years later he was on the pier when lifeboat was called out in distress. The crew was a man short so the coxswain called for a volunteer. George jumped on board and began his 30 years service to the RNLI, the last 10 as a coxswain.

George Leith died in 1992 shortly after completing the manuscript for this book
