I had been told that there was a rescue boat named after Alwyn Tamo, one of the people in my family tree. But I hadn't registered the fact that Hastings was the place where the boat was usually docked. I got such a delightful surprise walking in the salty sea air. There was the Alwyn Tamo right in front of me!

I believe William Tamo and Alwyn Templeton married later in life and lived in nearby Warneet.
