Saving lives at sea had long been every-day work for Lady Haig when she was towed across the Channel by the Skoot (schuit) Hilda on Friday 31st May 1940. She was commanded and manned by the Royal Navy, but also on board as First Engineer was Reginald Walter, who was mentioned in despatches. Lady Haig was badly damaged during her work on the beaches, but luckily survived to be towed back to her home port.
