    HSL 2507. This particular craft took part in a rescue which appears to be an epic for any type of WW lI RAF Marine Craft and its crew apart from being of especial interest in the story of a rather unspectacular type. HSL 2501 was fitted with extra long range tanks lashed on her aft deck for operation In distant northern waters off the Shetlands.

   THE Thornycroft Air./Sea Rescue Launch was the type built for the RAF in the greatest number (Kevin Oesrnond ­'Guinness Book of Motor boating Facts and Feats'). Although a total of over 100 craft were built by several yards this type never appeared to achieve the same affection in the hearts of Its crews as other types of craft. The first to enter service, High Speed Launch I HSL} 191, was stationed with two others at Newlyn in mid 1942. Some of these craft were filled with two Thornycroft 650hp RY /12 petrol engines while others had three 500hp Power, Napier Sea Lion petrol engines installed. Both craft had a speed of about 25 knots. A variety of armament was carried according to the  area in which the craft operated this could be UK waters. the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean.
