Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There was little else the BEF could do but get out it.

The positioning of the BEF in Gamelin's deployment put them between the French Seventh Army to the north and Blanchard's First Army to the south so when the armies retreated it left the French Seventh facing elements of von Kuchler's 18th Army and and French First facing the 6th Army of von Reichenau with the BEF effectively squeezed out of the battle until the final days when elements of the BEF held the line from Nieuport to Bergues along the Bergues-Furnas canal.
