The Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group has recognised two of its long-serving members with life membership.

Peter Munn was a member of Fremantle Sea Rescue for three years before joining the RVSRG as a radio officer.

RVSRG commander Graham Martin said Mr Munn had contributed to the group over the years by helping out with fundraising, working bees, clean-ups, and had also undertaken positions on the committee when required. “Peter has been called upon numerous times to conduct a radio watch at HQ due to an incident/recovery or search being conducted, where his experience, knowledge and his professionalism was needed and utilised to the maximum,” he said.

“His nomination is well-deserved following 22 years of dedication to the group.”

Peter Corcoran was also awarded life membership after joining the group in 2003.

“Since I have known Peter I have witnessed a hardworking individual that puts his hand up for everything,” Mr Martin said.

“He used to take on after-hours radio shifts that nobody wanted to do and has held various executive positions.”

“Peter is a fine skipper and I will always feel safe going to sea with him.”
