On 10 May 1940, Germany invaded France; pushing the British, French and Belgian troops back to the French port of Dunkirk. Stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk, they faced certain capture, which meant the collapse of the Allied cause. <
Winston Churchill ordered the start of ‘Operation Dynamo’ on 26th May; the rescue operation implemented by the Royal Navy and over 800 naval vessels, to get troops back to Britain from the beaches of Dunkirk..
The evacuation involved the rescue of more than 338,000 British and French soldiers between 27 May and 4 June 1940.
The Poppy Shop has launched a commemorative pin to mark the 80-year anniversary of Dunkirk & Operation Dynamo.
