    dunkirk beach boat 1940 1a.jpg Just bought this photo. The boat to the left. German troops on the beach photo 2. One other boat on the beach from another photo i have. Photo 1 is the The Princess Lily (Thames Passenger Launch) ? I don`t think they are the same boats ? unless it was moved by the tide.

    C’est la devise de la Marine nationale française : Honneur Patrie Valeur Discipline. c 'est le mot Valeur que l’on voit sut la photo.

    Merci vermesch.
    Thank you vermesch for this info. [ This is the motto of the French Navy: Honor Fatherland Value Discipline. It’s the word Value that we see in the photo.]

    What an amazing story, it's hard to imagine how terrifying it must have been for the brave men and women who endured the long year's of war
