Lifeboat Disaster: Tributes

Tributes to the men who lost their lives in the Robert Lindsay were many. Floral arrangements in the cemetery, the fishing fleet tied up with flags at half-mast on the day of the funerals. Provost J K Moir opened a fund for dependents which collected 35000 in the first month and 40000 by the end of the year. Lord Provost William Black's Dundee fund alone brought in over 7000. He commented, "I think the fact that the lifeboatmen went out in response to a Dundee ship evoked a sense of deep gratitude".

The second picture in the sequence shows a plaque in honour of those who died being unveiled in 1957.
