Respect

Remember
+1 on that
 
Dunkirk illustrates that the war was not only won by those in direct combat. Without those men willing to take their boats across, there would have been no foundation from which the BEF could have built.

Unsung heroes, like the Merchant Navy...and we will remember them.

Around 24,000 of those serving Merchant and fishing fleets died with no graves (about one in 4). Higher casualty rates than the armed forces.
