    Here are some photos I took on our trip last week.
    My wife's Grandad, pre-War Regular in Royal Signals, was evacuated off the Mole.
    These first ones were taken at De Panne.

    Cheers Owen. Nice pics.
    I've got some BEF related questions brewing; maybe you will be able to help me with them soon! :)

    Just reading "Churchill's Sacrifice of the Highland Division" by Saul David.
    Excellent book.
    Checking the named casualties mentioned in book on CWGC. Alot are on Dunkirk Memorial.
    Wish I'd read it before I'd gone, then could have looked for the names there.
    Bad planning.......again.

    A fantastic site! (usually round off a stay there) batterie Aachen and the Atlantikwall vestiges are simply superb (and the archaelogical site of the medieval Walraversijde is interesting enough for those with no military interests). Great book shop and bar too!
