ENGELANDVAARDERS- 32 Dutchmen who set sail for Britain in WW2

In memory of the thirty-two young Dutchmen who tried to escape to England by kayak during World War II to join the allied forces. Only three survived the war.

The last living survivor dedicates this memorial to his brothers in arms who were less fortunate. He reached England - and freedom - on this beach on 21 September 1941.
