    In August 2017, Canadians will join the French and others to commemorate the tragedy which befell the Canadians of the 2nd Division as well as British Commandos, and American Rangers in the early hours of August 19, 1942 on the beaches of Dieppe. Operation Jubilee consisted of several attempted beach landings: Blue Beach at Puys, Yellow Beach at Berneval-Le-Grand, Orange Beach at Varegeville-Sur-Mer & Quibervell, Green Beach at Pourville, White & Red Beaches at Dieppe.

    I trust those heroes who gave their all and then some, rest easy. The world is grateful to them. Looks like a very fitting Memorial is planned. Salute.
