Episode 68 – Part of the Family: Doug Grant

RNLI crews have been saving lives for two hundred years. For more than half of that time, a member of the Grant family has been among them.

In 2024, Doug Grant’s family will have served with the RNLI for a grand total of 125 years – a history decorated with award-winning rescues. Kessock volunteer Doug talks about a proud family tradition spanning four generations, starting with his grandfather, Jack.

If Jack were alive today, how would he react if he were to learn that his grandson Johnny is now also part of the RNLI family, as a coxswain/mechanic at Wick?
