Those words are inscribed on the RNLI memorial in Poole Dorset.
The memorial contains a list of over 800 lifeboat crew and others who have lost their lives whilst endeavouring to save others at sea, together with the places and dates. The details are inscribed in wavy lines around the base of the memorial.
They include J. Emptage and W. Emptage, Margate 1857 who, together with the other seven members of the crew of the Lugger Victory, lost their lives when the boat was swamped by waves when they were attempting to rescue the crew of the sailing ship Northern Belle.
