During the forenoon of the 2nd June considerable doubt existed at Dover as to the numbers remaining to be evacuated from Dunkirk. Captain Tennant thought that about 5,000 British and 30,000 French remained, but it was estimated at Dover, that in addition to the rearguard of 4,000, (who had been withdrawn according to plan, from the front line), a further 2,000 British troops might be found in Dunkirk; while the estimated number of French troops remaining increased during the forenoon from 25,000 quoted on the previous evening to figures in the region of 50,000 to 60,000. Admiral Nord himself estimated the French remaining to number 65,000 of which he hoped that 30,000 might be evacuated on the night 2nd-3rd and the remaining 35,000, who were holding the bridgeheads, on the following night.
