My father was Chief Coastguard at Robin Hood’s Bay from 1947 to 1953.
I was only about 10 but can remember he received two vellums for bravery from the Royal Humane Society for rescuing people from either shipwrecks or trapped by the tide.
Unfortunately I have lost the citations and am trying to obtain any information about these rescues.
I now live in Looe in Cornwall and unfortunately cannot get to Whitby.
I would be very grateful for any help.
Thanking you in advance whether you can help or not.
My telephone number is (01503) 26545, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
