NS3982 : Skylark IX

taken 7 years ago, near to Balloch, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Skylark IX
Skylark IX
This vessel played a part in the Dunkirk evacuations. It had been moored near here for a number of years, but sank in 2010; see NS3982 : Skylark IX (detail) for a picture taken a few years earlier.

When the present photograph was taken, the boat had only recently been raised from the bed of the Leven; a sheet was attached to its side, bearing the words "Skylark 600 troops saved".
