The little ships of Dunkirk, 1940


DUN

“The little boats of England
The little motor boats
The little penny steamers
From Lands End to John O’Groats
The Brighton Belle, the Margate Queen
The Vigilant, The Lark.
The Saucy Jane, The Gracie Fields
(Even a Noarh’s Arc)
Picked up their country’s message
That it’s back was to the Wall.
There is danger, there is danger,
Will you answer to the call?
Francis Drake, and Collinwood
And Nelson of the Nile
Were on their quarterdecks again
-You should have seen them smile
When all the little boats pushed out
From Dover to Dunkirk
To heed their country’s message
That was their job of work.”
