This photo of the Dunkirk memorial on Dover sea front was taken during the summer. On 11 November, Remembrance Day or Poppy Day, the area will be covered with poppies. The plaque beneath the memorial says it all, I think.

This memorial was erected on 16th August 1975, the 35th anniversary of the Battle of Dunkirk.
During the period May 10th to 1st June 1940, 202,106 British, British Commonwealth and Allied troops were evacuated to Dover.
The memorial not only pays tribute to the bravery and discipline of the servicemen, but to the courage of the crews of the armada of little ships which assisted, and the people of the port of Dover who received them.
I am again on my travels this week. We are moving out of our house by the end of the month, and the place we
hope to call home in the future should be in this historic part of the world. Life keeps changing.
