Naming ceremony of Mullions first lifeboat, the Daniel J. Draper, Penzance, Cornwall. 10th September 1867
Launched on 10th September 1867 at Penzance, the boat was a gift from mostly Cornish Wesleyan Methodists in memory of the Reverend Daniel James Draper who perished in the tragic wreck of the SS London in the Bay of Biscay in 1866. The lifeboat remained at Mullion until 1887, performing three services and saving three lives. She was followed by the Edith (1887-1894) and the Nancy Newbon (1894-1908), neither of which were ever used. Photographer: William Brooks
