MESSAGE TO MR TONY MARSHALL, NSW, AUSTRALIA:
I received your email asking about Rhyl lifeboat Anthony Robert Marshall but my reply bounced back undelivered.
I can tell you it was bought with a legacy left by a Mr Anthony Robert Marshall of Liverpool about whom I have no information. He may have left the money to RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) generally rather than to Rhyl station specifically. Whichever the case, it was a useful gesture. The lifeboat served us from 1949 to 1968. It was called out 102 times and saved 51 lives.
