  8. I'm interested in the photo of the base of the mole at 2:19 in the video. Do you have other similar pictures? I've been told the bunker there was built by the Germans in 1943. If so, what's that building amidst all the ruined vehicles? (It also seems to be evident in a picture on p185 of War Walks 2 by Richard Holmes, although there are more vehicles present.) Was it the dugout used as a British naval HQ during the evacuation? What's that sandbagged area and small structure on the far right of the image? One picture, so many questions.

  11. Interesting. The latter angle appears to the right of the sandbagged area in the first photo, which is missing the lorry.

    This is looking at it from the other side of the docks.

  18. I'm new here. Is there a way on the forum to send it to me directly? It's for my research for a biography of Cdr Clouston.
