Allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France are surrounded by the German Army, and evacuated during a fierce battle in World War II.
Mr. Dawson's boat is flying a blue ensign flag (because he was a member of a yacht club and/or was retired Royal Navy); most of the other boats are flying the red ensign, which designates a merchant ship.
English! I'm English! Anglais!
Before a ditching or forced landing, a pilot would have been trained to open the canopy to prevent it from jamming because of the impact forces (incidentally, in many cases, pilots taking off from aircraft carriers even left the canopy open just in case they ditched immediately after lifting off). Not only does this not happen in the movie but, in one case, the pilot even opens the canopy and, inexplicably, closes it back before touching down (actually leaves it ajar one inch or two). Predictably, in the second case, the canopy jams, nearly causing the pilot to drown. Further, in this second case, the pilot waves through the opening. However, there would not have been enough of an opening for him to squeeze his forearm through.
