The Bryan and Gordon Steaming into Newlyn this evening
 to refuel and  to dock for the night .
The Severn class lifeboat is from  BallyGlass lifeboat station which is located
in the Republic of Ireland is an all weather lifeboat with a 6 man crew.
She has a top speed of 25knots and was fist introduced to
BallyGlass station in 1995.
With no idear what she is doing in Newlyn i can only think that she is here
for Penlee Lifeboat disaster ceremony when on the 19th December 1981 8 very brave volunteer
lifeboatmen lost there lives.
