This story reminds us that it’s not the size of the boat that matters, cf. The Dunkirk evacuation, codenamed Operation Dynamo, also known as the Miracle of Dunkirk. It was the evacuation of Allied soldiers from the beaches and harbour of Dunkirk, France to the safety of the British shores between 27 May and 4 June 1940. Over 800 little boats, some even smaller than this little Jaguar helped turn the tide of World war II, by ferrying 338,226 Allied soldiers to safety in 8 bomb-filled sleepless days and nights.
