Excellent old, but new to me, pictures of the rescue of The Sepoy

Quite by chance today I came across this video of the History of the RNLI.   I have never seen it before and it is most interesting  –  a great deal better than the RNLI videos being made today.   It is quite long, well over an hour.

Between 21.20 and 28.40 it features Henry Blogg, the bravest and most highly-decorated of lifeboatmen.   And within that segment the rescue of my Grandpapa from the sailing barge Sepoy, off Cromer, in December 1933 is shown.   Some of it uses well-known photos but there are pictures and footage that I have never seen before.
