Relive the evacuation of Dunkirk from the deck of the Folkstone Belle, one of the ‘little ships’ tasked with the evacuation of the beaches.
Join the residents of London sheltering from the Blitz on a platform in the London Underground.
"The sea from Dunkirk to Dover during these days of the evacuation looked like any coastal road in England on a bank holiday. It was solid with shipping."
Sir Douglas Robert Steuart Bader, Aircraft Pilot
