Dunkirk September 2008, a photo post

back in September 2008 I had the chance to have a short visit to Dunkirk, in France. Dunkirk is of course famous for Operation Dynamo during World War 2. The town website is available through THIS LINK but this is only available in French. Enjoy my snaps.

Jean Bart

This statue is in the center of the town. It is Jean Bart, who was a privateer and played some part in defeating the English (Boo Hiss), who were threatening the town.
