    I have the attached booklet dated 1988 that was in my Fathers Dunkirk Association bits. I apologise if this booklet and accounts within have already been posted. I have searched the forum with some of the names listed and there were no direct results. I could post pics of the pages of the veterans accounts if required, However it will be next week as I am away from tomorrow.

    Regards

    Looks good. I'd be interested in some of the air force accounts if you can scan a couple?

    Just had a quick look through and there are no RAF accounts Marky.

    Please do post any army accounts that you have time to scan. I am especially interested in any accounts of where they went and the reception they received after they landed in Britain, which is a largely neglected issue. That does not mean that the cross channel events are not of great interest too!

    You could if you wish scan the whole document and add it either as an album under your profile or as a 'New resource' see right hand side of this link WW2Talk

    It does provide you with a back up of a rare document as well, if something dreadful happened and the document you had was damaged then there will always be an electronic copy of on here

    Thanks Incredibledisc, I see there is also an android version of that app.

    I suspected there might be one. It’s very handy. The only problem is the free version has a finite amount of storage so unless you back up your documents you eventually run out!

    Might be too many files on your phone - photos, videos, music, apps you don’t use, all those WhatsApp conversations etc I periodically have to delete stuff to free space.

    I apologise in advance for my lack of I.T. savvy. I have Jpegs of all the pages in the booklet and can upload them separately if that is allowed, I have the time now we are in isolation, or I can provide a link to the album of the pics on postimage.org, Can somebody let me know which is best please.
