Dunkirk Heritage Tour
July 7| £45
From May 26 to 4 June 1940, Dunkirk was the stage of the largest evacuation effort in military history. 338000 Allied soldiers were evacuated on a flotilla of more than 800 ships.
Now you can discover the incredible story of Operation Dynamo*. We visit Operation Dynamo Museum and the British Memorial and Cemetery which commemorates the memory of 4582 soldiers of the British Expeditionary Force who died during 1940 and who have no known grave. Next to the memorial is a cemetery of 810 graves of British soldiers. Most were killed defending the perimeter of Dunkirk during the evacuation operations.
We also visit the impressive Fort des Dunes* but start our day in Bray en Dunes and Zuycoote; when at low tide we hope to see the wrecks and remnants of battle and evacuation from that time subject to conditions on the day.
