LADY OF MANN (Isle Of Man Steam packet)

​​​​​​​Built 1930 at Barrow-in-Furness, she entered service with a black hull but was given a white/green colour scheme in 1933. Requisitioned as a personnel ship in 1939, she helped in the evacuation of Dunkirk and is reported as rescuing more troops than any other vessel. She was also at the evacuations of Brest, Cherbourg and Le Havre. She served as an headquarters ship for the D-Day landings. She returned to commercial service, with a black hull, in 1946, operating summer-only sailings. She was withdrawn in 1971 and sold for breaking up at Dalmuir.
