There will be celebrations today as Angle’s new Tamar class lifeboat is named by HRH Prince Michael of Kent.
The lifeboat was funded from a £1.6M donation from the Grand Lodge of the Mark Master Masons, a branch of the freemasons, and by RNLI supporters in Pembrokeshire who donated over £400,000.
HRH Prince Michael of Kent, The Grand Master of the Order of Mark Master Masons, will name the lifeboat Mark Mason during a ceremony this afternoon.
Angle’s Tamar, which was declared operational on 23 March 2009 has already proved her worth, having already launched on five rescue missions.
Call-outs have included escorting a fishing vessel taking on water, assisting a power boat with engine problems, searching for two missing boys and investigating a sighting of red flare.
