Ronnie and his family moved to Brights Place, Ramsgate in the late 50's. They at number 2, we at number 7 since the 30's. He was younger than me but we both attended St. Georges Boys, Church road, Ramsgate. His Dad Bob was then a retained Lifeboat man as the engineer, a post I believe he had held on previous local boats. I left school and subsequently joined the RN. I was later told Ronnie had joined The Ramsgate Lifeboat...his Dad was still alive then...a natural progression..?

Thank-you Ronnie for all mariners you saved/helped during your service. People like you are very special to those that 'Go down to the sea in ships'.
