Lifebuoy from RMS Lusitania

MH LI 05/2007


This cork and canvas lifebuoy (or ring lifebelt) was obtained by the skipper of a fishing boat from Kinsale, who helped in the rescue. He gave it to fish merchant Arthur Miller, who was in port at the time. Mr Miller later displayed it for many years in his office in Passage East, County Waterford. The lifebuoy is on long term loan to the museum, courtesy of Dr Arthur Neiland, the grandson of Arthur Miller.
