With the greatest respects to the RGJ and their forbears I don't really believe that the banner outside this forum is really correct. While they certainly were the first soldiers back in the hours before DDay they certainly weren't the last out of France - at Calais or anywhere else. In fact the pioneers were still in France after they had gone! Everyone seems to think that Dunkirk was the end in France. We actually sent more troops (Canadian and Lowland Scots) in afterwards to help the French (who were far from defeated) fight it out. Eventually the position was untenable and an orderly withdrawal at Cherbourg was conducted - with lots of heavy equipment recovered. Ah well, looks like 'the black mafia' are rewriting history as well now!
