3 hrs to Thurrock,way ahead of time so coffee at services. Bad move. As we came out a truck had caught fire before the bridge and led to over an hour delay. We were offered an early train so took it and ended up in Calais at 4:00. 30 mins drive to our fave little site in Licques. Omelette and frites for tea washes down with Organic Cotes du Rhone at £2:50 a bottle from ...
... graves. Another 37,000 names of the missing, are inscribed on the walls of the Memorial. There was also at least a dozen other "small" (less than 5,000 graves) cemeteries he saw either on the way out to Tyne Cot or while returning via a different route. Hundreds of these "small" ones don't even get a mention on the maps available at the Tourist Office. We think we may have seen sufficient war cemeteries for a little while.

After a wonderful Dutch snack and a glass of wine it was time for a long nights rest.

TravelPod Member ReviewsWelcome Hotel Dunkerque
The hotel is OK and the staff are friendly. It is in the middle of town and is well signposted. Not a great hotel but clean and only for a few days as there is little storage so you live out of your suitcase.
