Hello

Since I was a teenager, I thought I hope one day someone could display a plaque to remember Pat PORTEOUS VC N°4 Cdo R.A. action the 19th august 1942 in Operation Cauldron.
Years after years attending cérémonies of Commandos there, nothing has been done for that. Any words in différents Mayors speeches.

So, last year, I asked to the Mayor of Sainte-Marguerite-sur-mer, about the plaque for Pat PORTEOUS VC. After reunion with Council, he was agree.

With help from War vétérans association of Ste-Marguerite, The Vétérans Commando Association, The Victoria Cross Association, The Royal Artillery Association and Association JE ME SOUVIENS from Dieppe.
The plaque has been displayed last 20th august 2017.

Charmian, Pat PORTEOUS's daughter was there, several N°4 Cdo relatives attending too. Fred DAVIES standard Bearer, and 29 cdo R.A. Honour Guard.

It was a great day !!! and I think a good week-end for all 4 cdo kids. The Monday, we were invited to the Mayor's house, ( which is historic area but this is an other story.....

Thanks to alll !!!!
