Accreditation the Redcar and Saltburn by the Sea Gazette 21/01/1870.
SUPPER OF THE CREWS OF THE REDCAR AND
On Friday evening (14/01), a supper was given to the crews of the three lifeboats,–viz., the old and new boats at Redcar, and the National Institution boat at Saltburn—at the Globe Hotel, the cost of which was defrayed by a subscription, headed by the Earl of Zetland. The intention was to draw together in friendly intercourse. The whole of those connected with the lifeboat service, whether on sea or shore. More than 100 invitations were issued, and upwards of 80 availed themselves of the invitation, and partook of the splendid entertainment provided by the host and hostess, Mr and Mrs Wren. A very pleasant evening was spent in talking over their various experiences and adventures, interspersed with singing and other social enjoyment is, which were entered into thoroughly by all present, there was only one drawback, viz., that the crew of the old lifeboat was not fully represented, which was much regretted as it was hoped to have a full gathering of all the crews.
