On this Day in 1864
Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade
Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade (TVLB) was founded on the 5th December 1864 and was the first such organisation in the world. It was founded in response to the tragedy of five ships being wrecked on Black Middens rocks during 3 days of storms in November 1864, adding to the many lives lost over the years because of the treacherous rocks. The TVLV Watch House was built in 1887.
