As early as 14th May 1940 the BBC announced that "the Admiralty requests all owners of self-propelled craft between 30ft. and 100ft. to send all particulars within fourteen days" so that they could be requisitioned. This was more an order than a request and by 26th May most of them were called into service.
At Dunkirk she ferried troops from the beach to the larger vessels lying offshore and she finally returned full of British and French soldiers. For the rest of the war, she was stationed in Chatham Dockyard.
