Big Picture : Dover Castle

Today's Big Picture is a statue of Admiral Sir Bertram Home Ramsay at Dover Castle. He was responsible for the Dunkirk evacuation, codenamed Operation Dynamo. Working from the underground tunnels beneath Dover Castle, he and his staff worked for nine days straight to rescue 338,226 British and allied soldiers trapped in France by the German forces.

Hopefully as you read this I'll be on the road making my way down to Dover for the day. A new section of Wartime tunnels have been opened to the public for a limited time and we are taking advantage of our English Heritage membership to visit the new exhibit while it remains open.


  1. The tunnels are on my list of things to do as well,

  2. I went to the castle a couple of months ago, It massive, I didn't get time to do all I wanted, so I'll have to drag the kids back soon, reminds me I'll have to post a few pics that I took!!


Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, check out my YouTube channel Miniature Adventures TV
