Royal Navy Boats to Support Operation Dynamo

Royal Navy boats HMS Ranger and HMS Trumpeter will sail to Ramsgate this week, in support of commemorative activities to mark the 75th anniversary of the Dunkirk Evacuations – known as Operation Dynamo – in which 338,000 British and French Troops were saved from German Forces.

HMS Trumpeter is arriving on Tuesday, May 19 and HMS Ranger is arriving on Wednesday, May 20th. The two vessels will be berthed alongside one another at Eastern Breakwater in Ramsgate Harbour.

Upon arrival in Ramsgate, the boats will join a fleet of approximately 50 vessels recognised by the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships (ADLS). These are the original little ships that went to the aid of the British Expeditionary Force during Operation Dynamo.
