Heroes of World War II... the RAF High Speed Launch
 
05:43
UNSUNG HERO: HSL (1940) The great unsung hero of the Battle of Britain, the HSL was a revolutionary rescue boat that saved countless pilots stranded in the sea in Britain's hour of need. It was the brainchild of a visionary pairing of racing boat builder Hubert Scott-Paine and a certain famous aircraftman, none other than Lawrence of Arabia, who would stop at nothing to achieve his vision. Its design was based on racing boats, with a stable and streamlined hull that, combined with 1500 horsepower, that allowed the 64 foot-long hull to "plane" like a racer and reach up to 39 knots, around four times the speed of the conventional rescue boats of the day. And the hull stability and power also meant it was capable of going out in almost any weather. Timewarp... During World War II there were 22 HSLs posted along the British coastline. Today there are over 230 RNLI lifeboat stations. What Makes it Great... the simple, but revolutionary idea of combining racing technology with a "lifeboat" saved thousands of lives and changed the business of sea rescue for ever. © Engine Porn 2015 Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Engine-Porn/220891107929481 Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/engineporntv

WWII RAF Air/Sea Rescue Launch in "The Sea Shall Not Have Them"
 
03:50
T. E. Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia, joined the RAF in 1929, working at the flying boat station, Mount Batten in Plymouth Sound. He witnessed first-hand the deficiencies in the rescue system when a seaplane tender, despatched to save the survivors of an airplane crash in the Solent, arrived too late to save them before they drowned. He immediately began to press his commanding officer for the introduction of fast motorboat launches as rescue boats. Lawrence had experience using this type of vessel, having assisted with the 1929 Schneider Trophy race while at the helm of a Biscayne Baby, a fast boat when the temperamental engines were running. Meanwhile, Hubert Scott-Paine, the designer of the record breaking Miss Britain III and Miss England boats and founder of the British Power Boat Company (BPBC), made a similar offer of his expertise to the RAF and he soon began to collaborate with Lawrence in the development of 40 ft (12.2 m) long high-speed launches, purpose-built for sea rescue. The result, built by the BPBC, was the 200-Class Seaplane tender; powered by two 100 HP engines it had a top speed of over 36 knots. Testing on the launch continued from 1931-32 to ensure that the engines could run at sustained high speeds. The ship was an operational success and was followed up with the MkI and MkIA tenders, powered with Perkins Engines. These formed the mainstay of the Marine Section's rescue launches all the way through to the Second World War. Nine of these boats were ordered for use by the RAF Marine service by 1932. In 1935, larger 37 ft (11.3 m) boats were also ordered; these were fitted with wireless systems that allowed the launch to communicate with the Station and the search aircraft, allowing for an efficient system of contact to be maintained. The Type Two 63 ft HSL was designed in 1937 by Hubert Scott-Paine; 63 foot long and known as the Whaleback from the distinctive curve to its deck. This was the main high speed launch class ship used during the Second World War and was instrumental in the rescue of Allied aircrew from the sea after they were shot down. The failure of the Marine Craft Section during the Battle of Britain led to the creation of the Air Sea Rescue Services which with the motto 'the sea shall not have them', was created to coordinate at sea rescue with its own air sea rescue squadrons, Marine Branch and Royal Navy vessels, and Coastal Command flying boats. .

"The Sea Shall Not Have Them"
 
03:02
The RAF Air Sea Rescue 63ft Type Two HSL, known as the 'Whaleback' from the distinctive curve to its deck, was a high speed launch used in air-sea rescue to save Allied aircrew from the sea after they were shot down during the Second World War. The retrieval of pilots and aircrew shot down over the sea around the British Isles was the responsibility of the Royal Air Force Air Sea Rescue Service, whose motto "The sea shall not have them" coordinated rescues using its own aircraft, aircraft operated by Coastal Command and rescue launches operated by the RAF Marine Craft Service and the Royal Navy. The Type Two High Speed Launch was designed in 1937 by Hubert Scott-Paine, founder of the British Power Boat Company at Hythe Kent. Scott-Paine had previously owned the Supermarine Aviation Company, builders of flying boats including the 1931 outright record holding Schneider Trophy winner S6B and later the Supermarine Spitfire. The launch had a mahogany hull with a low set cabin containing the wheel-house, chart room and a sickbay, for defence two aircraft-style turrets made by Armstrong-Whitworth each with a single .303in Vickers machine gun were fitted to the top deck. The Type Two was supplied to RAF marine craft units from mid 1940, with around 70 Whalebacks being built for the RAF between 1940-42 and served throughout the war including the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean. Following the Dieppe raid in August 1942, the Type Two was modified with extra armament of twin .303in machine guns mounted either side of the wheel-house and a single 20mm Oerlikon gun on the strengthened rear deck. Protection was improved by adding anti-shrapnel padding around the wheel-house and cabin area. Maximum speed of the Whaleback was a respectable 36 knots (41.4mph) from three 500hp Napier Lion aero engines, re- named Sea-Lion after modifications which consumed sixty gallons per hour for each engine at 25 knots giving it a range of 500 miles. She had a crew of nine including a medical office and orderly; later the striking yellow colour scheme gave way to a more sombre grey/black finish.

Royal Air Force Marine Branch 1918-1986 'For Those In Peril 1943'
 
03:07
From 1918 to 1986 the Marine Branch of the Royal Air Force supplied waterborne support, rescue facilities and services for the Royal Air Force throughout the world. Inaugurated as the Marine Craft Section just eleven days after the Royal Air Force itself was founded, it initially provided back-up for the flying boats but it also developed a rescue service which during and after the second world war became the largest in the world. During the war years alone over 8,000 lives were saved by the crews of the high speed rescue launches who faced enemy action and all weathers to uphold their pledge of "The Sea Shall Not Have Them". The launches were involved in many major actions; at Dunkirk five seaplane tenders were deployed rescuing 500 troops from the beaches; at Dieppe 14 launches were in action three of which were destroyed by enemy action and 93 launches were involved in the supporting maritime landing operations on D Day. Launches also supported operations in the Middle East, Malta and Italy and also in the Far East, India, Burma, Malaya and Ceylon. The launches also carried out clandestine operations in Greece, Turkey and occupied Europe. Post-war, amongst other duties, the branch was involved in secret submarine location work, surveys and anti-terrorist patrols. By 1986 the more versatile helicopter had taken over the rescue work and finally the branch was privatized its few remaining maritime activities being taken over by civilian contractors. In 1951, at a meeting of several former wartime crews, the Air Sea Rescue & Marine Craft Section Club was formed and membership is open to all who have served in the Royal Air Force on marine craft in any of the recognized marine branch trades. The Club is recognized by the Ministry of Defence (Air) and each year on Remembrance Sunday wreaths are laid at sea from Newhaven and Bridlington whilst at Gorleston a service is held at the new memorial in memory of those of our comrades who gave their lives during the second world war. The Club is also represented at, the official opening of the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey, and the Cenotaph Parade, each November and at the annual Commonwealth Air Forces Commemoration Service at Runnymede in May.

During autumn of 1944, an RAF Hudson carrying a VIP passenger in possession of highly secret information is shot down and ditches in the North Sea. Fighting the elements and trying to keep up morale, the occupants of the aircraft's dinghy talk about their lives awaiting the rescue they hope will come. The film's title reflects the motto of the RAF's Air Sea Rescue Service, one of whose high speed launches battles against its own mechanical problems, enemy action, time and the weather to locate and rescue the downed crew and the vital secret papers they carry.
