Air-Sea Rescue Ship (ASR-10)

ASR-10 is an air-sea rescue craft built during World War II in 1942. It was constructed by Carrier Engineering and was one of a number of craft which were moored at strategic points off Britain’s east coast. Once in place these craft served as refuges for aircrews which ditched their aeroplanes into the sea. ASR-10 would have been fitted out with bunks, radio equipment, basic cooking facilities, dry clothes, food, and other essential provisions to ensure that the airmen remained as comfortable as possible before being picked up by a rescue vessel.
