Shelley The Lifeboat Labrador – FREE


Shelley The Lifeboat Labrador
John Periam
5 stars

‘SHELLEY THE LIFEBOAT LABRADOR’ is a story about our life in Southwold, Suffolk, England and moving down to Sussex. The story is linked by the writers personal experiences and the bond and affection between the writer and his Labrador Dog ‘SHELLEY’ over a period of 13 years.

The ‘Lifeboat’ connection is that the writer became a crew member of the Shoreham Harbour RNLI Lifeboat and there are many related chapters to this. Shelley became established down the boathouse with other crew members. There are the stories of rescues at sea, fund-raising events, and situations associated with life around an active station.

The Preface to the book is written by Peter Huxtable MBE who was Shoreham Harbour Lifeboat Coxswain and often took his dog Gilbert to sea with him when he was a fisherman. This is a ‘Real Salty Dog Story.’ It was an era when the crews were steeped in family tradition and maroons were fired to launch the lifeboat!
