In between work and callouts a comment on facebook caught our eye.
Someone posted a picture of our truck and wrote - thank you to the volunteer Coastguards ........
A comment said " since when have Coastguards been volunteers" - well in Swanage, 1888 to be precise. ( yes that's over one hundred years!!!)
Although there are full time Coastguards in our operations centres and senior officers, the Rescue teams are ALL volunteers who all have full time jobs.
A little volunteering last night at Anvil Point ......
