Cygnet was another example of the great variety of Little Ships that made up the flotilla which answered the call for help by crossing the channel, in those last days of May 1940. She was owned by A.A. Rowse of Oxford. The wind and weather were kind to her when her Royal Navy crew made the crossing and on that occasion she returned safely.
