Hans Busk the younger (1815 - 1882) was one of the principal originators of the volunteer movement in England. He took an equal interest in the navy. Originally it was his intention to adopt a naval career, and, being forced to abandon it, he devoted much of his leisure to yachting. He mastered the principles of naval construction, and made designs for several yachts which were very successful. He was the first to advocate life-ship stations, and fitted out a model life-ship at his own expense. Busk's youngest sister, Rachel Harriette Busk, was an authoress of repute.
