Commander J. Glendinning RNR, in his report dated 5th June 1940 to the Naval Officer in charge, Ramsgate, told tersely how he took command of the tug Java on 28th May at 1430 and proceeded to Dunkirk with four drifters and five motor launches including the Nayland. They arrived off Bray Dunes on 29th May at 0100 and he anchored in three fathoms of water sending the motor launches to the beach in search of troops which "seemed to be hiding in the sands". All the vessels under his command proceeded to transfer soldiers from the beaches to the bigger ships offshore.
