This is an image of a member of the Scarborough RNLI team who is looking out from the boathouse to the sea where the rest of his crew were training.
Due to the harsh conditions on the day most of the team were out training, to make the most of the conditions in which they often have to work to save the lives of hundreds of lives each year! 30% of the profit from this product will be paid in support of the RNLI.

LCC-LFB Fire display at Brigade HQ Southwark
The London Fire Brigade encouraged, for very many years, a good public image by opening its doors to the public to special fire brigade displays. On Saturday afternoons, during the summer months, it was a regular feature to see displays at the Southwark Headquarters. As the picture shows it drew large, and frequently a boater-hatted, crowds. A motorised fire engine works two firefighting jets, while a turntable ladder is fully extended to the top of the drill tower. Where there was space to stand and watch the public took every opportunity to do so
