We moved into Belgium on Sunday 12th May 1940; took part in the Battle of Louvain; the retreat to France with action on the Scheldt River; the action to close the German Bulge; and finally evacuation after 4 days and nights on the beaches. As far as I was aware we were the only RAF personnel to be taken off of the Dunkirk beaches. We were the only source of weather information for gunnery available to both 1st and 2nd Army Corps. We lifted off Dunkirk Mole at about 12.00 hours on the 30th May, and were landed at Margate at 20.00, and from there by train to a small village in Worcestershire by the name Cleeve Prior.
