Royal Regiment of Canada
DIEPPE HISTORY

 

August 19, 1942, a combined operations force made up primarily of soldiers from the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division, landed on the beaches of Dieppe; also known as Operation Jubilee.

PRISONERS OF WAR

 

What happened on Blue Beach was horrendous. There was no way to escape the inevitable. The Germans were on three sides, the English Channel on the other. Continuing would mean more bloodshed.

PHOTO IDENTIFICATION

 

We are reaching out for your help. There are so many men who we cannot identify in our pictures. Please take a moment and visit our gallery. We are grateful for any information you may have.
