The death of six lifeboat men was commemorated in Aberdeenshire on Saturday, 60 years after the tragedy.
A ceremony took place at the RNLI memorial outside the Fraserburgh lifeboat station, where crew gathered to pay respects.
Family of the victims also attended and helped lay a wreath at sea (above).
Only one man survived when the RNLI lifeboat capsized in heavy swell after helping two boats back to Fraserburgh harbour.
The coxswain was thrown clear of the boat and swam towards the harbour until he was hit in the head by wreckage and died.
The five others who died were trapped under the boat's canopy.
Vic Sutherland, current coxswain at the town's lifeboat station said the anniversary of the 1953 tragedy was a "sombre occasion."
