On 5 March 2014 at 18.30 hours, the RNLI Shannon class lifeboat 13-02 'The Morrell’
went on service as the new Dungeness RNLI lifeboat.
Dungeness Lifeboat Station in Kent guards the Channel from Folkestone to Rye Bay and today operates a Shannon class lifeboat, "The Morrell" paid for by an extraordinarily generous legacy gift from Mrs Barbara Morrell. She left the RNLI a legacy worth over £6 million, requesting that it be left to fund a lifeboat for Kent, as she came from Bromley in Kent.
