Edit: it sounds pretty familiair to me though, don't know why. Anyone else?
You may be right; someone in the YouTube comments said:
"I asked someone on Twitter who worked on the marketing for Dunkirk. He said it was a piece by Zimmer. Not in the film though, so maybe an unused bit of music they thought would work for marketing. Big shame as I love it!"
I will go out on a further limb and say that this may have been the original music for the ending-montage.
And it really does sound incredibly familiar, like it's a classic or something (even though if that comment is to be believed, it can't be).
