Follow the twisting story of the Dunkirk 'Little Ship' Skylark IX, from the WW2 Operation Dynamo to new role today helping people recovering from addictions.

‘Hope Floats’ reveals the fascinating story of Skylark IX, which is believed to be one of only two ‘Dunkirk Little Ships’ from the World War 2 Operation Dynamo surviving in Scotland.

Curated by the Skylark IX Recovery Project, which cares for Skylark IX, the exhibition charts Skylark’s story from launching as a pleasure boat in 1934 through her wartime service and final sinking in 2010.

The story culminates with her new role inspiring and changing the lives of people recovering from addictions across West Dunbartonshire.
