The Duke of Kent, President of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, visited the crews of all the Thames lifeboats last week including the Chiswick Station.
After visiting Lifeboat Pier in Waterloo and meeting crews from Tower and Gravesend lifeboat stations, the Duke travelled upstream by lifeboat to Chiswick Pier.
Here he was introduced to crew members of Chiswick and Teddington Lifeboat Stations as well as committee members from the respective RNLI fundraising branches.
The Duke said that he was delighted to have the opportunity to see first hand the work of the crews from these busy stations and experience a different view of London during his river journey.
