Second World War.During World War II (1939 - 1945) the Boatyard of Tough Brothers was at the wharf on the opposite side of the river. In May 1940 Douglas Tough organised and assembled 100 private boats at that location. In 'Operation Dynamo' these 'Little Ships' went to the beaches of Dunkirk with many other vessels and rescued 338,226 British and French troops between 26th May and 5th June 1940. this operation saved our country, enabling us to go on to victory in 1945.
