Humberside Fire and Rescue Service
Water Rescue Boat Unit
London Fire Brigade
This vessel is now in preservation. It was launched in 1935 and used by the LFB until 1971. Having led an amazing life, she was involved in fighting fire in The Blitz on London during World War II as well as bringing troops back from Dunkirk. More recently, in 2002 and 2004, Suggs (from Madness) and the Salvage Squad helped restore Massey Shaw back to her former glory. She is now used for ceremonial duties and is run as an educational trust.
|Lincolnshire FRS use this rib for water rescue work. Four firefighters (one in the water) are rescuing a man during a demonstration exercise.|
|As they return to shore and the casualty is attended to, one firefighter signals the direction of travel and another operates the steering and engine from the rear.|
