The Lighthouse Story
All civilisations have faced the challenges of trading by sea: storms, bad weather, and the hazards of cliffs and other natural landmarks that threaten their safe passage into ports and harbours. To guard against this, their people built lighthouses - first as simple fi res on hillsides, but soon these turned to grand towers and buildings that cycled through each scientific advancement as it came. Lighthouses have now become part of the landscape. Aided by beautiful photographs from all four corners of the British Isles, Nicholas Leach presents the story of the lighthouse and its development, from the earliest lights to the modern navigational aids.

Harwich Lifeboats: An Illustrated History
Harwich lifeboat station operates two modern, state-of-the-art lifeboats,operated by 28 volunteers and two full-time members of staff. The lifeboats work the coasts of Essex and Suffolk, as well as the rivers Stour, Orwell and Deben, the Walton Backwaters and the Thames estuary south of Harwich. Nicholas Leach, editor of Ships Monthly, tells the story of the various Harwich lifeboats, their crews and the daring rescues they have performed since the first lifeboat was established in the 1820s. Perhaps one of the most infamous of the wrecks was that of the German passenger liner Deutschland, which saw the founding of an RNLI station in Harwich in 1876. Unusually, for many years, Harwich did not have an operational lifeboat station, but when the lifeboat was active, it was always busy. Harwich was, though, the first RNLI station to have a steam lifeboat and one of the first motor lifeboats was sent to Harwich on its trials. The first 17m Severn lifeboat to see active service was allocated to Harwich too and its Severn vessel has seen service as far as Zeebrugge. Many notable rescues have been performed by Harwich lifeboat crews, and sixteen silver and four bronze medals have been awarded since 1829.

The Lifeboat Service in Ireland: Station by Station
For the past two hundred years, lifeboats have been stationed around the coasts of Britain and Ireland, ready to rescue the shipwrecked. In times past, shipwrecks were much more common and there was little provision to help those stranded at sea. Places such as the west coast of Ireland would see hundreds of wrecks per year, from small sailing vessels to large steamers. By the beginning of the nineteenth century, volunteer lifeboats bgan to be stationed around the coast in the most dangerous areas and soon, the Royal National Lifeboat Association began to provide new stations and lifeboats. With the introduction of these lifeboats around the coast, many lives have been saved over the intervening two centuries. Ireland has seen more than its fair share of wrecks because of its location, with many vessels foundering after a tortuous journey across the Atlantic, as well as costal traders lost in storms or accident. War has played a part too, with the western Approaches being the graveyard of many a torpedoed or mined vessel. Nicholas Leach tells the story of each irish lifeboat station, both north and south, using photographs of the lifeboats, houses and rescues. His book provides a valuable record of two centuries of lifesaving along the Irish coast
