"With the the 75th Anniversary of D-Day safely negotiated and James' triumph of a lecture to the school done, I have time to reflect on a couple of other pieces that went into making the project such a success. During his research, James kept coming across reference to at least two German gunboats that were involved in the action around Pegasus Bridge. If you look into this, and trust me we did, there are conflicting accounts as to what they might actually have been. A common thought was that they were civilian trawlers requisitioned by the Kriegsmarine and fitted out as Flakships. The Vorpostenboote, as they were known, were a common sight around coastal areas and so we thought it highly possible that these might have been the boats referred to in the eyewitness accounts…."
