    I think the barge in the background might be Barbara Jean.

    Just got some AI colour software. just trying it out. I know B&W is the best. To much yellow i think. Photos taken off my pc screen so not that good.

    The lost barges were the Aidie, Barbara Jean, Duchess, Doris, Ethel Everard, Lady Roseberry, Lark, Valonia and Royalty.
    Photos of Ethel Everard from my collection. You see lots of photos of Aidie, Barbara Jean, and Ethel Everard, any one have photos of the other barges sunk at Dunkirk. The last two photos are of Sunken barges with no ID. Anyone knows the name of them?.

    The last photo barge is under water with just the mast showing when the tide comes in. You can see it in this photo, in the background to the left of the barge Aidie, and in the 2nd photo to the left of the Ethel Everard under water. Photos from my collection.

  20. I'm interested in what appears to be a small structure at the base of the mole almost directly across from and below the sluice, and to the left of what I assume is the German bunker. Captain Tennant established a naval HQ in a "dugout" in that area during the evacuation. Is that it, I wonder? Any other closer views of that small patch of land?
