DIORAMA “OPERATION DYNAMO” 

The Evacuation of Dunkirk in May 1940: a model of HMS Wakeful, a V & W-class destroyer built in 1917. This destroyer undertook many crossings to Dover but was eventually sunk by an E-boat with a crew of 600 on board. The wreck is classified as a war-grave and is lying between the Kwinte and Middelkerke banks. In the background, Zuidcoote and Dunkirk can be seen. Many ships which took part in the operation were beached on the coast. These V&W class destroyers, 51 units in total, were built between 1917 and 1918 and were in use for a long time, even until the end of WW II, as convoy escorts. The most famous one was HMS Warwick, under the command of Admiral Robert Keyes, well known for the attack on Zeebrugge on 22 April 1918.
