Valentia Lifeboats: A History, has been compiled using the first-hand accounts, original and rare images, and detailed records of the station. It is a fitting tribute to the people who have served here, and will be a record of the station for many years to come.

The lifeboats of Valentia have been in service since 1946, when the volunteer crew were summoned to action by the firing of maroon flares.

Dick Robinson has been associated with the lifeboat station for almost sixty of those years, firstly as a child watching the flares, then as a serving crewmember, and finally as a maritime historian.

In this detailed history, he captures the spirit of the station, together with the tragedies and sacrifices that make up its history.
