Listening to the stories of those who own Dunkirk Little Ships, again and again you find that they did not know of their involvement in 'Operation Dynamo' when they first bought their ship. When Len Jones saw a lovely 1936 Rampart cruiser advertised for sale in 'Exchange & Mart', he bought her just to potter about on the Thames with occasional brief excursions round the coast. When Len died, she became the property of his son Simon.
