The Coastal Regeneration Forum is a voluntary organisation dedicated to the maintenance and upgrade of East Lothian's coastline both as a civic asset and a public amenity.

They are committed to commemorating the events of 16th October 1939 with a permanent memorial, telling of the courage of the pilots and sailors involved and the common humanity in extraordinary circumstances they and locals alike found themselves.

The Forum is seeking funds and support for this worthy project.
