Today I was 'forced' to tweet something to the RNLI following their Tweet the day before defending their work in English Channel. They replied, thanking me for my words and pictures of a 1990s washing line peg bag, one of the many RNLI support products my family have had over the years.

When we returned to the UK in 1970, the RNLI was the main focus of my mother's charity work. I guess most British homes has had a pack of RNLI playing cards, and many remember the Lifeboat money boxes in probably every pub.
