    Default Dunkerque Little Ships

    Does anyone have a complete list of all the boats that took part in the Dunkerque crossing?

    I've had a look at the website but it's not overly helpful. I've also tried e-mailing, but have received no reply.

    Can anyone assist?

    Thanks

    I recently bought a secondhand book (at the Goodwood Motor Racing meeting) on this very subject and it has listings of all the boats, who owned them at the time and (up to the publishing date - 1990) what has happened to them since.

    BTW : they included the 'Marchioness' which was run over by the Bow Belle on the Thames in 1989(I think) with a great loss of life

    The book is called "The Little Ships of Dunkirk" and the ISBN number of the book is 0 946604 02 9 though I don't think it is still in print

    If you wish to get some more info, send me a private message and I'll get in touch offline.

    Thanks

    I wasn't even aware of this link - it's already led me to the historic vessels board which is fascinating

    Thanks again.

    Hi - I've had a lot of luck finding out of print books via http://www.gravitybooks.co.uk/, reasonable prices too.

    From the ID pictures, I thought that I'd subscribed to a car forum - if it's of any interest I have a black MGB

    it's just that Barry doesn't have a boat yet, I'm selling mine and most of us are too ugly to put a picture of ourselves on it so a car's the next best thing
