Portrush Rocket Life Saving Company
Portrush Rocket Life Saving Company, who were volunteers under Coastguard management, used this Wreck Post on Ramore Head for their quarterly practice exercises (one of which was always carried out in darkness). With the post representing a ship’s mast, a Boxer Rocket (named after the military engineer Captain Boxer) could carry a line up to 200 yards from ‘shore’ to the team at the ‘mast’.
Lifesaving by Coastguardsmen
The Lifeboats owned and managed by the Royal National Life-boat Institution are stationed at almost every point of our extensive seaboard where loss of life through shipwreck is most to be feared; while the services performed by their crews every year, unostentatiously, and in the ordinary course of duty, are such as would do honour to any age or nation.
