October's Quiz Answer..
Quite a few correct answers this month. The first one was Pete Freeman who correctly identified these objects as being things that are put into ships life boats. From left to right the objects are ,a fishing line with float, a water proof red light with whistle, a second fishing line with a lure, and a knife, note the large wooden handle to make it float and length of line to fasten it to the hand for easy retrieval if dropped in the water.
