THE COASTGUARD STATION

The advantages of specially designed Coastguard Stations soon became apparent, and during the eighteen-thirties many were built in spots round the coast where smuggling was to be expected. Each man had a comfortable cottage for himself and his family, with a rather larger one for the officer, and a watch room. Only in Ireland were they made defensible. Everything had to be as clean as on shipboard, and naval discipline was maintained, with necessary modifications. For instance, a man whose wife quarrelled with her neighbours could be moved to another station at his own expense.

Excellent insight into the daily life of Coastguard families. It would be marvellous to read about the daily life around a station, what they did when not pursuing smugglers.
