Rescue of Elvis in 1997

We have had some interest about the rescue 25 years ago which was highlighted in the JEP's recent article about the enduring friendship between former crew Paul Battrick and Elvis.

Whilst the rescue took place well before social media in any form, and before most papers had any meaningful online presence, we have managed to track down some of the original press clippings which covered this remarkable rescue and tragic loss, several of which came from the national media (we think the Times and the Daily Mail). They document the sequence of events and involvement of the numerous assets tasked to the SAR operation, including both the St Catherine's inshore lifeboat and the St Helier all-weather lifeboat.
