    At 1900 hours, the British Admiralty instructed its commander at Dover, Vice Admiral B.H. Ramsay, to begin evacuating members of the BEF from France. They hoped to save 45,000 over a period of two days. They did somewhat better than that. Here's to the brave men who made the operation such a success.

    A great achievement between 27th May and 4th June 1940 given the prevailing circumstances.

    Thanks to Andy and others who have highlighted this particular part of Military history, with some excellent threads.
