    We are in Cornwall next week for eight days. We hope to visit all the Cornish RNLI stations during our visit and Penlee is top of the list. Please arrange some good weather!!

    I'm an ex Brit now living in Australia and I'm in Trevignon Brittany on Bastille day. The lifeboat station is open to the public so on my last day here I get the chance to check out the boat and station. Blow me down! there's English voices coming from the comms room. I didn't interrupt but I assume you guys are somehow twinned or linked with Trevignon? I couldn't place Penlee despite being a Hampshire lad but managed to track you down through Google. Excellent website guys. I'll be adding you to my favourites tab to follow your exploits.

    Thank you for such an informative website. Although we are from Kent, we have always felt an affinity with the Penlee Lifeboat as our eldest daughter was born the same day as the disaster, we have visited mousehole several times over the years and are currently back again for a week. Much respect for all RNLI volunteers around the country. Xx

    Thank you so very much for this website. I live in Bellingham, WA-USA and recently watched Penlee Disaster-1981 documentary. Extremely affected by it and in awe of such men then, before and now who volunteer to rescue people/strangers at their own risk. This tragedy made my heart hurt and my mind heavy with such a loss. But to know volunteers and lifeboats continue on and carry the same commitment and loyalty that that crew shared in that tragic day brings relief to me even though I'm not near, for it affects us all. Valuing humanity, starting in your back yard and across lands and seas, is a link that will forever connect us. Thank you! I will never forget what I have learned and will share how forturnate we are to have men and women who are willing to risk their lives to save others.

    Yourselves and all other lifeboat crews throughout the UK are the bravest of the brave. Thankyou for ALWAYS being there to help. We are so proud of you.
