70th Anniversary Dieppe Raid Memorial
On the 18/19th August 1942 American Rangers, Canadian Forces and those of the United Kingdom and France launched an audacious raid across the English Channel into occupied France.
The raid on Dieppe was a failure, but the sacrifice of Allied lives and the trauma of those wounded and captured should not be forgotten. Lessons learnt helped pave the way for a successful D-Day landing on the 6th June 1944.
On the 19th August 2012 at noon we will be dedicating the Dieppe Raid Memorial in the Allied Special Forces Grove, National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire.
This information might be of interest to veterans and their families and all Canadians in the UK.
Further information about the Grove can be obtained from our website http://www.memorialgrove.org.uk/ and the National Memorial Arboretumvia www.thenma.org.uk

The memorial was entirely funded by our association over the past 5 years, however donations are well appreciated.
