'Mimosa' was requisitioned along with many other pleasure boats in 1940 for 'Operation Dynamo' and, after being provisioned and fuelled at Dover, left under the command of Lieutenant Commander Dixon for three trips to the beaches off Dunkirk. It was to be 57 years before her Dunkirk history was revealed after careful research by her present owners, Colin Messer and Jane Percival who felt that she had a 'history'.
