St Valery-en-Caux or Veules-les-Roses?
This photo from Hugh Sebag-Montefiore's book DUNKIRK claims to show St Valery-en-Caux, but the building in the background looks very much like Veules-les-Roses, where evacuation attempts also took place during Op Cycle on 10-11 June 1940. The vessel in the upper part of the photo may be "Hebe II", a Dutch coaster sailing out of Poole with an RN crew who, with the exception of one crew member, went into captivity on 12 June along with the 51st Highland Division.
