The Endeavour is a cockle boat built in Leigh on Sea, Essex, England in 1924. On 30th May 1940 Endeavour was requisitioned to take part in operation Dynamo, in the evacuation of troops from Dunkirk. In total 338,00 allied soldiers and 200 dogs were rescued by all the cockle boats etc involved. A spirited boat, still going strong after being lovingly restored to former glory in 2001.
