Memorial to 32 Dutchmen
Memorial to 32 Dutchmen
The inscription on the broken oar reads as follows: In memory of the thirty-two young Dutchmen who tried to escape to England by kayak during World War II to join the Allied forces.
Eight of them reached the English coast. Only three survived the War.
The last living survivor dedicates this memorial to his brothers in arms who were less fortunate.
He reached England - and freedom - on this beach on 21 September 1941.
