I identified it as purely speculation, and it should be taken as such. It certainly is not meant to demean RNLI or anyone else, and I can understand your belief that no rescuer would EVER risk his life in a masquerade like that. Deep down I believe that too, but I also know that stranger things have happened. It's extremely rare, but firefighters have been known to start fires. It happens. I doubt something like that happened here, but the cynical part of me refuses to completely rule it out.
