    Remember Dieppe

    Post by Avro683 on Fri Mar 04, 2011 9:41 am

    I came across this video on youtube the other day when looking for information on the Essex Scottish Regiment after a very close friend and Veteran of this regiment passed away suddenly. He was the last Dieppe veteran in our area and would never talk about Dieppe only about being taken prisoner. With tears in my eyes I watched this video..

    Great video. It made me realize once more how much Canadians gave to liberate Europe. Thanks.

    ... I have a little bowl of stones I collected from the beach on my desk to always keep things in perspective.
