The Sacrifice We Will Not Forget




by Robert P. "Bob" D'Aoust




The Dieppe Raid has been part of Canadian history for over 75 years and we are about to see the passing of all but a few veteran soldiers. Within the next five years we will lose almost all our Dieppe Raid veterans who served in the Canadian Army. These men served with the 4,963 Canadian troops who participated in the August 19, 1942 Raid. A total of 916 made the ultimate sacrifice serving with the 23 military groups.
