A foreword by H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh sets the scene for the much overlooked story of the Trinity House yachts and tenders, which since King Henry VIII’s reign have maintained and serviced the offshore lighthouses, lightships and buoyage around our coastline. Now brought right up to date, it includes details of many incidents in the Service’s long history which are revealed here for the first time. With over 160 illustrations, 44 in full colour, plus vessel plans and profiles, this book will have a great appeal to all sailors, as well as those who harbour a curiosity of, and interest in, Britain’s maritime history.
Size 186 x 250, 240 pages, 160+ illustrations (44 in colour), large fold out plans, hardback buckram cloth covers with top & tail bands, laminated dust jacket.
