Great story. I had imagined the Beach Companies were something like our life savers today, young men in skimpy bathers and well oiled bodies. But if they were going out to cargo and passenger ships at sea, in bad weather, then clearly this had to be a properly developed service.
They should have been paid properly! If they provided an essential service to a vital transport network, then taking a share of the salvaged cargoes did not seem to acknowledge the risks properly.
