Apparently some of the original Little Ships took part in the filming! So that is a reason to want to see it on its own. There are probably actors and people in it, but I want to see the little ships. :-D
And while I am blethering, I thought I would link the history of the Tamar Barge Lynher here - she did not go to Dunkirk, being occupied as a barrage balloon platform at the time, but she is still an interesting elderly old boat, dating from 1896. The photos are worth a glance: - quite a spectacular restoration story because she looks a complete mess having been hulked under the mud. I will look forward to spotting her on the river next year!
I'd hate to own a wooden sailing boat - soooooo much work - but the sight of them always cheers me up.
