Dunkirk is a 2017 American-British-French-German World War II film directed by Christopher Nolan that tells the story of the evacuation of surrounded British, Belgian and French troops from Dunkirk in 1940 (Operation Dynamo). The film's cast includes Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Fionn Whitehead, Jack Lowden, Cillian Murphy and One Direction member Harry Styles. The story had previously been told in a similarly-named 1958 film Dunkirk. Note: The screenshots seen here will be of varying sizes due to the change in aspect ratio throughout the film.

The following weapons were used in the film Dunkirk (2017):




Webley .38 Mk IV

Colonel Winnant (James D'Arcy) carries a Webley .38 Mk IV revolver in his 1937 canvas holster.

Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III*

British soldiers including Tommy (Fionn Whitehead) and Alex (Harry Styles) are seen carrying Lee-Enfield No.1 MkIII* rifles. Some of them are mockups with straight bolt handles and smaller barrels.

Vickers K

Vickers K machine guns are fitted to British Motor Torpedo Boats. This is potentially anachronistic because as a general rule Motor Torpedo Boats at the time were fitted with ground pattern Lewis Guns, not being replaced with the Vickers K until 1942. The actual boat used during production is MTB 102 which was actually present during the real Dunkirk evacuation (acting as the flagship for Rear Admiral Wake-Walker), and is in fact the sole surviving Royal Navy vessel that participated in the operation.

Several Bofors 40mm AA-guns are seen used by British soldiers at Dunkirk.

A Oerlikon 20mm Cannon is mounted on the British Motor Torpedo Boat and the Destroyer Maillé-Brézé.
