In May 1940 the British Expeditionary Force and both French
and Belgian forces were trapped on the beaches surrounding
Dunkirk. A major operation was initiated to evacuate these
troops known as Operation Dynamo. Hindering these efforts
were huge fires in the oil refineries alongside Dunkirk
harbour. London Fire Brigade (LFB) were approached for
assistance and the Massey Shaw fireboat was dispatched to
France with an enhanced crew of both LFB and Auxiliary Fire
Service staff. Although the fire boat was not used for
firefighting, she assisted in the evacuation of many troops
and in the rescue of both sailors and soldiers from a
sinking French warship. On their return to London, the
Massey Shaw and her crew received a hero's welcome.
