A former RAF officer who is now operations manager with Lyme Regis Town Council has joined the crew of the town’s RNLI lifeboat.
As a flight lieutenant, Matt Adamson – Drage ,46, was an aerospace battle manager with the RAF until retiring last year after 20 years service.
He has now joined the lifeboat crew as deputy launching authority.
Matt’s RAF role involved co-ordinating battle situations with other services, including the Royal Marines.
He said: “I am keen to learn about all aspects of sailing and hope to have my own boat, so it seemed a natural move to volunteer with the RNLI.”
