Dunkirk Operation Dynamo Small Boats commemortate Anniversary

Every five years The Association of Dunkirk Little Ships gets together to sail from Ramsgate over to Dunkirk as a mark of remembrance of the evacuation which rescued over 300,000 troops from the beaches of Dunkirk. Earlier today a small flotilla left Ramsgate harbour  to give recognition to the hundreds of small boats that were involved seventy five years. I am not going to write much about the exploits of those brave boat owners other than to say their efforts made the war effort change and they shortened the length of the war.

  3. I went down to Ramsgate Harbour on Wednesday to capture some of the images on my camera. It was a really colourful scene, with the little ships dressed overall and Medway Queen in the centre of it all. There was a great atmsophere too - fun but respectful - with many older folk with personal memories of the war and younger people with an interest in learning. A very pleasant afternoon.
