This exhibition, created by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), honours the courage and determination of those who saved lives in the midst of the First World War of 1914-18.
This family-friendly exhibition focuses on heroic wartime rescues from around the coasts of Britain. The stories include that of the rescue of the 'Rohilla', wrecked off Whitby, which involved the lifeboat from Teesmouth.
These fascinating stories of danger, heroism and hope are told through atmospheric multimedia displays, which offer visitors of all ages the opportunity to learn about the bravery of the volunteers of the RNLI.
‘Hope in the Great War’ was created by local communities who have come together to create interactive displays and engaging artworks and is funded by the Arts Council England.
