Town council officer joins lifeboat crew

Matt Adamson-Drage is the latest volunteer to join the lifeboat crew

A FORMER RAF officer who is now operations manager with Lyme Regis Town Council has joined Lyme Regis lifeboat crew as a deputy launching authority.

As a Flight Lieutenant, Matt Adamson-Drage, aged 46, was an Aerospace Battle Manager with the RAF until retiring last year after 20 years service.

Matt, whose RAF role involved co-ordinating battle situations with other services, including the Royal Marines, 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.”

Matt is married to Zishan, deputy town clerk of Axminster, and they have two children – Theo, aged 4, and Jacob, 7.

Matt’s position with Lyme Regis Town Council was previously held by another member of the lifeboat crew, Elliot Herbert.
