About this title
Reverend Thomas Stanley Treanor (1873-1910) was a British chaplain at the Missions to Seamen, Deal and the Downs. His works include: Heroes of the Goodwin Sands (1892), The Log of a Sky-Pilot; or, Work and Adventure Around the Goodwin Sands (1893), Fasting Communion Neither Primitive Nor Apostolic Nor Divine (1894) and The Cry From the Sea and the Answer From the Shore (1900). "For twenty-six years, as Missions to Seamen Chaplain for the Downs, the writer of the following chapters has seen much of the Deal boatmen, both ashore and in their daily perilous life afloat. For twenty-three years he has also been the Honorary Secretary of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution for the Goodwin Sands and Downs Branch; he has sometimes been afloat in the lifeboats at night and in storm, and he has come into official contact with the boatmen in their lifeboat work, in the three lifeboats stationed right opposite the Goodwin Sands, at Deal, Walmer, and Kingsdown. With these opportunities of observation, he has written accurate accounts of a few of the splendid rescues effected on those out-lying and dangerous sands by the boatmen he knows so well. "
