Thanks for putting that up RTF. I didn't realize any, let alone that many, of the vessels were still around. A lot of British fishing boats based along the Channel were involved, too.

Thanks for the message and reminder. One of the pleasures of the annual Antigua Classics week is that several of the "tenders" to the classic sailboats are themselves classic motor vessels (150 feet+) from the pre WWII era. At least two and sometimes three of these museum quality vessels bear a plaque from the Crown honoring them for their service at Dunkirk. The plaque is mounted in what is probably the most prominent position possible, at the head of the gangplank for boarding.
