My great, great, great grandfather was Joseph S. Gilbert, a coastguard on Heligoland in 1870. If you Google "coastguard heligoland" there is a book called "Heligoland Past and Present by Alex Ritesma with a preview of pp81 and 82 which describes how 6 British coastguards were posted in Heligoland in 1868.
