Henry Frederick Swan Restored Lifeboat


Henry Frederick Swan Restored Lifeboat.

The Henry Frederick Swan lifeboat was launched in August 1917.
She served initially on the Tyne between 1918 and 1939, however the vessel was brought back into service at Tynemouth from 1941 to 1947, her replacement having been destroyed in a German air raid. 
She was used by various Sea Scout groups in the UK and other organisations and private owners  before becoming derelict and she was stuck in the tidal mud for several years on the Tyne near the Scotswood bridge.
The North East Maritime Trust(NEMT) based at South Shields restored the Henry Frederick Swan and completed the restoration in April 2019. 
Here is the vessel berthed at Newcastle Quayside City Marina in May 2019.
Here are some photos of another restored lifeboat the Tyne at South Shields
The RNLI continue to do heroic work around the coast of The United Kingdom and Irish Republic and photos of some the modern boats can be seen here.
