From the Dunkirk Beache

A Union Jack rescued by a German Soldier from the beaches in Dunkirk in 1940 was presented to the Museum in February and will go on show in March. Friedrich Marschall, a member of an AA unit, found the carefully folded flag and kept it at his parent’s house with the intention of returning it after the war. Unfortunately he perished in Russian captivity in 1948 and for many years it remained stored in a family home in East Germany until it was rediscovered and subsequently presented to the Museum.
