The Dunkirk Spirit - Born To Boats (1958)


Recommended Posts

On my weekly trawl of new Broads related additions to YouTube, I've just come across this little gem. Clearly made for the American market and encompassing boating in the UK in the 1950s as a whole, this does have some interesting Broads footage. Most noticeably on first run through, you can see the Ferry Inn at Horning finally being rebuilt following the bomb damage sustained during WW2. Some later footage of powerboat racing on Outon Broad too. It flits about the UK, but I really enjoyed this film. It's a lovely little time capsule .. and clearly we are a nation who were born to boats :)
