Keith A of Hertford, you're absolutely right about the BEF not being "abandoned" at Dunkirk. Absolutely incredible efforts were made to get the troops back to England. After my earlier post on this thread, I pulled "The Miracle of Dunkirk" down from the bookshelf and am re-reading it [for about the 3rd or 4th time]. Thanks Don M. and Fellwanderer for confirming that the Snow Goose actress was indeed Jenny Agutter. I still hope to see it somtime... can't understand why it's not been made available to the public on a DVD. I'm sure it's a truly "beautiful and moving" film. It would have to be as the story itself is beautiful and moving and so is Jenny Agutter, even today!
