    "Eventually we got down to the beach at Dunkirk and there were blokes lying all over who'd been killed. You were such an easy target. There was such a concentration of fire by the enemy and we were so tightly packed that they couldn't really miss. We built a trench, but with no ships to take us off we stayed there for three days, while they were bombing and shelling."
