The third and last talk within our series will examine the contribution of Ramsgate within what Churchill later described as a 'miracle of deliverance.' With Ramsgate being only 28 nautical miles from Dunkirk it came to the forefront in planning for the evacuation. Over the critical nine days Ramsgate safely received and dispatched some 39,848 allied serviceman. Playing its own part in the contribution to the miracle. The focus of the talk itself will range from the efforts of the little ships to the sacrifices of the town's population, who rallied round and provided aid and comforts for the returning troops.
