Dunkirk Veterans

July 21, 2017

Dan meets some of the surviving Dunkirk veterans on the famous Little Ships which helped to rescue them from the beaches.

The Little Ships of Dunkirk were 700 private boats that sailed from Ramsgate in England to Dunkirk in France between 26 May and 4 June 1940 as part of Operation Dynamo, helping to rescue more than 338,000 British and French soldiers who were trapped on the beaches at Dunkirk during the Second World War.We’re launching HistoryHit.TV.
