Diana – Small Boat, Big Story

This is the tale of a small boat called Diana with a big story.

She helped salvage the flying boat Cloud of Iona after it went down in fog in 1936 and took part in the evacuation of St Malo in 1940. Much less well known than the Dunkirk evacuation, the St Malo evacuation involved 20 small Jersey boats evacuating 21,000 military personnel.

Diana has now retired to a new life as the centrepiece of this exhibition about a small boat and its big story as part of an Island community.
