Remembering all the Fallen and those who suffered life changing injuries during Operation Jubilee at Dieppe on the 19th August 1942.

View the Commando Roll of Honour at Dieppe [HERE].

View more in the Archive about the raid [HERE].

We will remember them.

Pete Rogers, son of LSgt Joe Rogers MM & nephew of TSM Ken McAllister. Both No2 Commando.

We give thanks to Peter Kenny for taking the Commando Association wreaths over and laying them. Stephane helped him.

Thanks to the French who gather to remember each year to remember all the fallen.

Remembered with honour.
