300px-Tamzine_at_iwm_london_side_view.jpg
Built in Margate in 1937 by Brockman & Titcombe as an open fishing boat for all year-round fishing off Birchington-on-Sea in Kent. One of hundreds of similar small rowing boats used in the Dunkirk evacuation for ferrying troops from the shoreline to larger vessels lying in deeper water. Tamzine was towed back to Margate by a Belgian fishing vessel and although saturated in blood was otherwise intact. She was immediately identified and re-claimed by local fishermen due to her distinctive straight stem.

Tamzine, at 15 feet long, is the smallest surviving boat from the evacuation. She is now part of the collection at the Imperial War Museum London.

L’Astrolabe and La Boussole

Oui Taffy, Quite correct. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
La Perouse's ship the boussole, was driven backwards into the reef and sank very quickly, the few that escaped most of these sailors were killed and their skulls preserved in the local spirit house.
The L’Astrolabe which went through a false passage in its attempt to rescue the first ship, fared slightly better, most of the crew got ashore, they built a two-mast vessel from parts of the wreck, eventually all but two sailed away into blue oblivion their fate is not known.
Tantalisingly, several ships could have rescued the two surviving French sailors and heard their stories of the disaster. Captain William Bligh after the mutiny on the Bounty in 1789 reached Vanikoro after he was cast adrift in an open boat with 18 crew members Bligh decided against landing fearing a hostile reception and set sail for Timor several other ships passed but never landed
An Indian sailor called Joe visited Vanikoro in 1820 he met an elderly French survivor.
The French Government upon receiving a report sent a search party to the area to search the islands but no French sailor was found . roomer was that one of them died in 1824 and the other had left Vanikoro with an islander friend.
Your prize....
