Gift of Buoy to Ingoldmells

Lincolnshire Lifeboat Association

It is with sincere pleasure we record in our columns another proof of the interest this society has created even in the more distant parts of the Empire.

Captain Henry, R.N., residing at Guernsey, has forwarded to John Booth, Esq., of Ingoldmells, as a gift, a most ingenious apparatus, called a portable buoy, with all the tacking attached therto, the employment of which in any sudden shipwreck, upon our dangerous coast, promises to afford the greatest assistance in saving the lives of our fellow creatures in the hour of peril.
