DEC. 20TH. - FLAMBOROUGH, YORKS H I R E . D u r i n g t h e m o r n i n g a s t r o n g E.N.E. wind was blowing, increasing at times to gale force. A heavy sea was running. The local fishing coble Britannia was at sea, and anxiety was felt for her. The motor life-boat Elizabeth and Albina Whitley was launched at 11.30 A.M. and met the coble about two miles away. The life-boat escorted her through the heavy broken seas. - Rewards, £14 10s. 6d..
