Folksy Friday #9

Little Ships.....

Just a quick one this week as Ive spent ages posting my Donegal pics...Bloggers being a bit mean tonight! :(

This week marks the 70th anniversary of The little ships of Dunkirk.  700 private boats sailed from Ramsgate in England to Dunkirk in France between May 26 and June 4, 1940 as part of Operation Dynamo, they rescued more than 338,000 British and French soldiers, who were trapped on the beaches at Dunkirk during the Second World War.

 "We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender"   - Churchill

So a huge salute to the Little Ships (pinks the link)

I adore the satchel! I would have used that as a teenager and would love to use it today! Might have to fight my daughter for it though!
