' The pretty and sightly 65ft "TSMV "Princess Maud" of the Southend Motor Navigation Co., Owner-Operators Skipper A.E. Brand and Chief Engineer W.H. Wilson. This Motor vessel was requisitioned on 27th May, 1940 for service off the shallow-water Dunkirk beaches during Operation Dynamo - running a ferry service between the beaches and larger ships anchored-off in deeper water, - a duty for which the vessel was uniquely suited since the French conditions were so similar to her normal summer operations at Southend. Lost through stranding on a falling tide at Bray-Dunes, which caused her to be abandoned by her inexperienced RN crew. '
