Lifeboat helps Cambria

Found on the “interweb” today an article which brings together two of my interests:  barges and the RNLI.

Of course, I was sorry to hear that someone on the Cambria, (doesn’t say if it was a crew member or a visitor), had fallen and was injured, but glad that the RNLI could help.   Cambria was at Erith, and the incident took place about 3.00am last Wednesday when she had come down river after the River Pageant.

Here’s the link to the story on the This is Local London website.

  1. The Cambria Trust Secretary tells us that the injured party was a Rotarian – Cambria is sponsored by Rotary. Apparently he missed his footing when returning to his bunk from the wc, easily done on a barge at night.
