Joe Read was 15 years old when he was caught up in a moment in history no one will ever forget. Winston Churchill called it 'a miracle of deliverance' when over 300000 British and allied soldiers were rescued from the beaches of Dunkirk by a fleet of over 800 boats. Joe and his father Wally risked their lives taking their pleasure craft, the New Britannic, across the channel. Joe's story is told here for the first time.
