Saluting the Little Ships

One of the joys of my job is sending items on the next stage of their vintage journey. The story of two Stakmore folding garden chairs is one lovely example. Spotted in the shop, they were purchased for a new life aboard a Dunkirk little ship!
Built in 1930, “Lazy Days” came under fierce attack during World War Two as she ferried troops during the Dunkirk landings but has since been fully restored and takes part in many commemorative events. The chairs - themselves nearly 100 years old - will be used to provide much-needed comfy seating for Dunkirk veterans on the boat.
