RNLI Eyemouth on an Exercise

 

A photographic series documenting the Eyemouth, Scotland RNLI station on an exercise on 7th August, 2016.

The RNLI are a charity that have historically guarded the United Kingdom’s coastline. The crew is mostly made up of local volunteers. As a result there is a wide range of people from fishermen to office workers.

Eyemouth is a historic fishing port traditionally used by smugglers. Gunsgreen House, a large smuggler’s home with many secret and inventive storage places for tobacco and tea leaves, overlooks the harbour and stands directly behind the RNLI station.
