This wonderful photo of the Newhaven lifeboat "Kathleen Mary" being launched was taken by the late Jim Cookson, sometime in the late 1960's or early 1970's.

Great shot and a scene that recalls my childhood -we'd hear the maroons going off, then we'd run like mad down to Fort Rd and stand at the railing to watch the lifeboat hit the water, a life-sized version of the little lifeboat we liked to put pennies in in the fish shop.
