Another Dunkirk Recce

It seems that 1940 and events at Dunkirk will very much dominate the media coverage of the WW2 70th Anniversary this year. Last week I found myself in the Dunkirk area yet again, this time taking a team from BBC2 who are looking at the story of the ‘Little Ships’ and the Battle of France. As the production is coming out of BBC NI, the story in France will partially follow the experience of 2nd Bn Royal Ulster Rifles and during the trip we were able to find the exact spot on the Furnes canal which they defended as part of the Dunkirk Perimeter. The programme will not be aired until May/June and will be presented by my friend, Dan Snow. More details when I have them.
