Apparently there is a Dunkirk movie

I am not sure if this is really a good moment for yet another second world war movie... but youtube informs me that there is a Dunkirk movie coming up next year.    And I am a total sucker for the Little Ships of Dunkirk story, so I definitely want to see it.

 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.

  • TRSB reveals happened...

    and my two stories were: Swan-feather Song Tuor and Idril sailed away into the West, and were lost. But how did that happen, and what came next?…

  • TRSB completed!

    The Tuor and Idril story is done, and after much prodding and poking, seems a decent shape. The Tropical Yavanna story came together really…

  • TRSB #1 ... sort of finished

    This story was about Tuor & Idril. I hadn't written them before, and I'm really not convinced I've done a good job. The story seems over-long…
