“Dieppe – Blue Beach – Every Man Remembered”

Last week I presented a lecture at Orillia Public Library. When talking to Jayne Turvey, who had invited me to speak, she told me about her latest military history project.

Jayne is trying to find descendants of “every soldier from The Royal Regiment of Canada who landed at Dieppe on August 19, 1942.” Their goal is to “create a memorial book for the 75th Anniversary of Dieppe Raid (August 19, 2017).”

They are looking for stories, photographs and anything else that can be found to remember every man involved.

You can read more on their website “Dieppe – Blue Beach Every Man Remembered The Royal Regiment of Canada” and they have a Facebook page “Dieppe Blue Beach Every Man Remembered.”

If a member of your family served and fought at Dieppe then please contact Jayne to help her with her goal “Every Man Remembered.”

    My father David Roy Fields served at Dieppe with the Royal Regiment and was a prisoner of war. He enlisted with his Nephew Gerald Fields. Both were from Sandwich East Township, Ontario. Dad did some work in a boot factory and served as a mail nurse at the hospital.
