Was originally built in Castleford in 1930 by Cliff and Jones. She was later used as a Dunkirk little ship and took part in Operation Dynamo evacuating troops from East Beach. Her current owners are heavily involved in the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships (ADLS) and brought her to HMS for a mini refit over the winter of 2018/19 prior to an association celebration in London’s St Katharine’s Dock in May 2019. When she arrived to HMS Southwold on closer inspection we discovered a more extensive restoration was required, there were large areas of the hull which had serious rot and John managed put his car key through the side of the hull!
