Alistair Carmichael's father the coastguard

I don't know if I will get the chance to use this in House Points, but I thought I would park the link here before I forgot where I saw it.

Alistair Carmichael speaking in Westminster Hall last Wednesday:
It is ... a matter of some family pride that my father was for many years a member of the auxiliary coastguard, which is now a volunteer coastguard, on Islay. He was an active and leading participant in many rescue operations off Islay and several cliff rescues throughout the 1950s and 1960s.
