TRAMORE IRELAND, JAN. 7
The Cambridge University Boat Club lifeboat, the Tom Egan rendered yesterday (reports Mr. James Budd) some valuable service to a shipwrecked crew. The French Schooner Ammenion of Nantes was observed unmanageable in the bay with loss of rudder and rigging. The lifeboat of the National Lifeboat Institution immediately put off to the help of the shipwrecked crew and ultimately succeeded in bringing the whole of them five in number safely ashore.
One of them had one of his knees put out of joint while getting into the lifeboat but Dr. Kennedy immediately attended to his case and the man is now doing well. It should Be mentioned that the Hon. D. Fortescue generously took the shipwrecked crew to his house and provided for their wants.
