To bolster our collection of Rhyl lifeboat photographs, here are a couple more from Gaynor Williams taken on fundraising days. The one at the top is dated 1934 and shows Caroline Richardson II (which was on station from 1897 to 1939). The other photo is from about 1950 and shows the Anthony Robert Marshall (1949 to 1968).

In 2009 the Rhyl lifeboat station's Flag Day was held on 8th August to coincide with our first air show which attracted an estimated 25,000 people. Flag Day takings were over 3 times as much as in previous years, but more money is always needed.
