AUGUST l6TH. - SHERINGHAM, NORFOLK.
During the morning the private lifeboat Henry Ramey Upcher went out with about sixty passengers for a pleasure trip.
She was taking part in the local celebrations of the victory over Japan. About two miles off-shore she tacked to return, but could not make headway against a strong westerly breeze, with a choppy sea. Instead she was blown to leeward and anchored about a mile to the east. It was then thought advisable to launch the Institution’s life-boat, and, at 11.45 the motor life-boat Foresters Centenary put out. She took the Henry Ramey Upcher in tow, beached her, and arrived back at her station at 12.30 that afternoon. - Rewards, £16 13s. 6d..
