Little Ships visit the Royal Victoria Docks

VISIT TO BE CURTAILED

Due to the winds forecast for Monday and Tuesday in the Thames estuary it has been decide that the Little Ships will depart the Royal Dock around 11am on Sunday morning. This means the events scheduled for Sunday will have to be cancelled. This situation is very much regretted but as with all things nautical we are all in the hands of the 'weather gods'!

Although every one of the Little Ships of Dunkirk has a story, not all these are preserved in written records. The skippers and crews were too busy to keep a log and not all of them survived. The simple story of the Marsayru appears in Battle Summary 41 compiled by the historical section of the Admiralty and she is also mentioned in Walter Lord's book 'The Miracle of Dunkirk' and in A.D. Devine's book 'Dunkirk'.
