Triton 1904

 November 18 1904

During thick fog, the Dutch steam dredger Triton went ashore at Hanover Point. The lifeboat was launched in heavy seas and the coxswain Ben Jacobs took the lifeboat alongside the ship. With heavy seas breaking right through the ship, the lifeboat took off her crew of ten. This was the last rescue of the lifeboat

William Slaney Lewis which had been in service at Brook for 19 years.
