SOME OPERATION DYNAMO MEMORIES PART TWO By Mick Twyman The late Dorothy Parker, daughter-in-law of Harry Parker, brother of Ted (Edward Duck Parker) the Coxswain of the then Margate Lifeboat ‘THE LORD SOUTHBOROUGH’ which, of course, went to Dunkirk with her crew of Margate men and served with distinction working off the beaches, had vivid memories of those dark days. Along with the late Nora Doughty she had been a founder member of the Nursing Section of the Margate Ambulance Corps when it was formed in the mid-1930s. She recalled to me how, on the 28th of May, she and her colleagues were told to, “Get down to the Jetty”. When they asked why no explanation was forthcoming, just a repeat of the blunt order. So off they went as they had been told and the reason for their very terse instruction soon became apparent when, in the afternoon sunshine, vessels crowded with khaki-clad cargoes of men from the B.E.F., snatched to safety from the inferno that was Dunkirk, started to arrive at Margate’s famous old Jetty - day-trippers of a very different kind but just as pleased to see Margate as their peacetime counterparts had been. One very grateful and relieved Cockney soldier was heard by Dorothy Parker to say, “I’ve ‘ad many ‘appy outin’s to Margit, but this is the best of all!” The first vessel to arrive was the paddle steamer ‘SANDOWN’ which delivered 201 men, and she was followed by another paddler ‘GRACIE FIELDS’ with a further 281. ‘GRACIE FIELDS’ had been requisitioned as a Naval Minesweeper, and she was sadly lost to bombing as she was leaving Dunkirk with troops on the 30th of May. Over the next week over 100 vessels brought to Margate one seventh of the grand total of all those rescued from Dunkirk. The emergency services and townsfolk all worked ceaselessly to care for the wounded, and there are many of those landed here, and to see to the pressing needs of the exhausted troops, many of whom had lost their clothing during their ordeal. The town and surrounding area were scoured for food and drink to supply the needs for their men, and townsfolk gladly gave from the meagre stocks in their larders. Appeals for clothing met with an overwhelming response with 2000 shirts, vast amounts of underwear, hundreds of coats and trousers and over 200 blankets appearing from the half empty town. Whilst parties from the town ranged from all over East Kent to secure what meagre supplies could be found, those in Margate soon having been exhausted, the job of feeding the troops went unabated. It was estimated that 100,000 cups of tea were served as the troops transited through the town on their way to the special trains that whisked them away, and they all got something to eat. A great problem during the first few days was finding footwear for the boys as lots of footwear had been left in France, but once again the town turned up trumps with hundreds of pairs being found. Eventually the Army got it’s act together, and supplies of boots and uniform began to appear from the Quartermaster’s Store of the Dover Garrison. Although East Kent buses were laid on to ferry troops to the Railway Station, some actually made the journey along the seafront on foot, but everybody first faced that long trudge down the Jetty. Obviously, there was no time to be lost in delivering some of the more seriously wounded to the medical teams waiting for them, and a brave decision was taken to drive the motor ambulance of the Margate Ambulance Corps up the Jetty in order to save precious time. The Jetty had a deck of 2-inch planks, and it is a wonder the ambulance did not drop through it into the sea but in another small miracle of Dunkirk it did not, although some of those present at the time told me that the poor old Jetty was creaking and groaning as it swayed to this unaccustomed load for which it had never been designed. There is no doubt this decision saved many lives as time, as always, is critical in medical matters. PART THREE NEXT MONTH To Advertise in The Margate Handbook please Phone 01843 571145

Grandma In The Garden (Lots of Tips) ● Keep patio containers well watered and feed with a liquid fertiliser every fortnight. ● Cyclamen are starting to set seed now, so increase your stock by sowing the fresh seed in gritty compost (one part grit to one part potting compost) and leave in open cold frames ● In hot weather, raise your lawnmower blades as longer grass is more tolerant of dry conditions. ● Remove rampant bulrushes or irises from your pond before they go to seed and make the problem worse. ● Regularly mist plants in greenhouses, polytunnels and conservatories to prevent red spider mite infestation ● Pinch out the top of tomato plants to concentrate the growth into the fruit that has already started to form. ● If you have a glut of autumn raspberries, blackberries or loganberries, freeze them on trays for a couple of hours and then bag them up to use over winter. ● Plant out any rooted runners of strawberries for a good crop next year. ● Hanging baskets need watering twice a day; to make this easier consider attaching them to a pulley system ,another tip is to water hanging baskets by putting ice cubes on the top, moisture is slowly released as the ice cubes melt. Ensure these do not touch the plants as this may cause damage ● To prevent slugs getting to plants in containers, smear outside of container with petroleum jelly or WD40. ● To stop cats using your flower beds as a toilet - spray tea bags (either new or used) with Ralgex (Deep Heat). Bury the teabags just below the surface of the soil - when the cat disturbs them they will give off the scent of the spray - which cats can not stand. In time the tea bags will break down and nourish the soil. ● Dog pee kills grass - twice a day put one tablespoon of tomato juice in with your dogs food. The harmful acid in the pee is neutralised, which means that the grass is not killed. (This does not harm the dog!) ● If you find handles of tools, mowers and shears uncomfortable to hold try buying a foam bicycle handlebar grip. Slip the grips over the tool handles, using washing up liquid or Vaseline if it proves difficult. If the handle in question is continuous try slitting the grip horizontally to allow it to be slipped over the handle. Pipe insulating foam may also work.

A quick and easy mulch for thirsty plants Put the grass clippings on a plastic sheet and leave for one day in sunshine. Turn the pile of clippings and leave for another 24 hours, or until they have turned brown. Apply the mulch by spreading round each plant. Never cover the crown of a plant.

FLORISTS' TIPS Spray dried flowers with hair lacquer to prevent them dropping. To fluff up dried roses, hold rose head over a steaming kettle and gently tease out petals. To remove dust from silk flowers, put some table salt into a paper bag, put flower heads into bag and shake vigorously. Remove flower from bag and they will be dust free. Poppies keep longer if you singe the stems over a naked candle flame. To revive dropping tulips or roses, wrap tightly in newspaper and put into water up to their necks. Leave overnight. If your roses are wilting, cut 1cm off stem, wrap in paper, plunge stems into boiling water for approx. 10 seconds, then put into cold water.

GRANDAD IN THE SWIMMING POOL With all of the nice sunny days we have been enjoying, which does make a change, Grandad had been invited to lots of Barbeques. Some of these invites came from friends and others from family. Every one that he has been to have all been special in their own way. However one sticks in his mind, it was one he went to where there was a swimming pool in the garden. Dozens of children were in there swimming, playing, splashing about, in short all having a great time. Lots of moans went up when parents asked their offspring to come out of the pool and have something to eat or have more Sun Cream put on, or just simply sit down for 5 minutes and have a rest. Well when kids are having fun they don’t want to rest, they want to carry on doing what all their friends are doing, playing and having a good time. Grandad could see that, apart from one or two, most of the little ones starting to get a bit red with the hot sun, the food was ready so he stood up and shouted, “Right everyone out of the pool, the food is ready and some of you have to have more sun cream put on, plus we have to check the pool water”. Well absolutely nothing happened so Grandad said it again, this time in a loud voice. All the little ones in the pool stopped what they were doing, looked at each other then looked at Grandad. “Yes come on, everyone out of the pool now” said Grandad. “It’s very important that we do the checks on the pool”. Well this was just a ploy to get everyone out, however Brian, Grandad’s eldest son said “While everyone’s out we could just check all the levels in the pool. “Check all the levels”? Asked Grandad “You can see how deep it is from here” he said to Brian. “No not the depth of the water, but the levels of Chlorine and the PH levels” Brian replied. Well Grandad didn’t know what he was talking about so Brian explained that the pool water had to be maintained to certain levels by adding different types of chemicals and sanitizers. “I thought that you just filled them up with water and off you go” said Grandad. However this is not the case, to stop water turning green and to help stop anything infectious in the water this has to be done. Because sometimes little kids have an accident in the pool or they simply don’t want to get of the water to have a pee they do it in the pool, because nobody can see them. So whilst everyone was out of the pool Brian got Grandad to help him check the pool and add any chemicals needed. “Won’t this do something to their skin” Grandad asked when Brian was adding something called Shock Chlorine to the pool. “ No, as long as you give it about 45 minutes before you go back in, it will do it’s job but won’t be harmful to anyone” said Brian. Just then a little boy with a huge hot dog in his hand and tomato sauce covering most of his face, came up to Grandad and said “What is that stuff that you are putting in”? “It’s a special stuff that tells us if anyone has had a pee in the pool” said Grandad. The little lad went very quiet and stopped chomping on his hot dog, then he turned back to Grandad and said “Does it tell you their names”?

Welcome to Dippers & Dunkers' 20th - 27th August 2010 A very warm welcome to Margate’s second festival of New Variety, Burlesque and Seaside Entertainment. The festival takes its name from the locals who would ‘Dip and Dunk’ their sea-bathing visitors into Margate’s salty waters. The beautiful ‘Blue Flag’ beaches of Margate have always had a classless, ageless and universal appeal and the festival will let you ‘dip’ into a wide variety of arts and heritage-focused activities, all with a contemporary twist! Having received incredible feedback from last year’s festival, we are thrilled to extend ‘Dippers & Dunkers’ to a full week. So, come and join us for fun and frivolities .
