In Pictures; The Cyril and Lilian Bishop lifeboat

Today saw the finale of Dee-Day White and Tush Hamilton’s restoration project to bring the Cyril & Lilian Bishop (aka, The Ghost of Dunkirk) lifeboat back to Hastings.
The challenge today was to bring the boat from The Stade on the seafront, up All Saints street to its final resting place opposite All Saints church.

Congratulations to Dee-day and Tush, it really was a tremendous effort by everyone involved.

Here is my record of the event in pictures.

Pett level Pillbox

This past Tuesday our camera club met up at Pett level for an evenings spot of photography along the beach. However, even though throughout the day we’d been blessed with blazing sunshine it didn’t end up giving us (or at least me) that wonderful golden light I’d been hoping for. It just seemed a bit lifeless and just a little too hazy to get anything half decent. Heading up from the beach towards the houses I bumped into another club member and we decided it might be a better idea to head up towards the old World War 2 pillbox. A very good decision this turned out to be too, with just enough golden light hitting the bickwork.

This is one of my favourites from the eve but I took a couple of others both inside and out of this building.  The part you see here is the lookout, but there is also another section that was used for the gun emplacements that we didn’t get to. Another visit me thinks.

A very pleasant evening had by all, rounded off with a nice chat in the pub too. 🙂
