London Fire Brigade

Special lecture on 'Operation Dynamo' to be held at Brigade museum next month

02 June 2015

On Thursday, 2 July 2015 a special lecture - Operation Dynamo: The little ships of Dunkirk - will be held at the Brigade's museum.

Operation Dynamo was the codename given to the Dunkirk evacuation in May 1940.

The Massey Shaw fireboat, with staff from London Fire Brigade and the Auxiliary Fire Service onboard, was dispatched to France as part of a rescue effort to save thousands of troops trapped on the beaches surrounding Dunkirk.

The boat recently took part in the anniversary of the evacuation, joining a flotilla of vessels that renacted the voyage taken 75 years ago.

Tickets are priced at £10 and include refreshments as well as the chance to visit the museum.

To book your place, please email museum@london-fire.gov.uk or call 0208 555 1200 (ext. 39894).
