Pictures of Dunkirk Little Ship Aquabelle in Ramsgate Harbour Today.

As I suppose most off you know the anniversary of Operation Dynamo means that The Little Ships are gathering in Ramsgate Harbour.


One of the little ships that I had some dealings with back in the late 1960s and early 1970s was Aquabelle, she has returned today for the first time since the 1970s and I have just retuned from taking a few pictures of her.





Back in the 70s I was an engineer so my main memories of her are her engines, twin six cylinder Ailsa Craig diesel engines, here they are.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
