The Lifeboat Disaster - 1
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.
