Lost Photographs of the RNLI by Edward Wake-Walker
Book DescriptionThe photos were discovered by Charles Campbell, among piles of paperwork in a shed in the grounds of Burg's house. Each photo had the words 'please return to the RNLI' stamped on the back, so that is exactly what Campbell did, personally delivering them to the RNLI headquarters in Poole 55 years after Burg took them. Each photograph from the 'lost' collection comprises an individual chapter, supported by a narrative description of the rescue depicted. The overall effect is of a series of exciting and intriguing 'random snapshots' that depict the rescues and personalities of the RNLI over this important period in its history.
