Dear Friends

Tim Robinson sadly reported - Sad to say that Private Arthur Robinson of No 4 Commando aged 98 passed away today in Weymouth. Last night we represented him at the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate the battle at Dieppe on the Esplanade at Weymouth.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Tim Robinson and Carolyn Robinson and all the family and friends. We give thanks for his service and for our freedom. He will be remembered with honour

May God's richest blessing and comfort be with all the family friends and the No 4 Commando family at this sad time.

A Tribute to No4 Commando following the Dieppe raid

Oh, gallant men our nations pride
Whose valour cannot be denied
Their name is echoed far and wide
The Fighting Fourth Commando

Their deeds shall live from age to age
They?ve writ their name on History?s page
Upheld their glorious heritage
The Fighting Fourth Commando

At dawn they made that fateful raid
Advancing grim and undismayed
They fought undaunted, unafraid
The Fighting Fourth Commando

For us they trod the depths of hell
Faced certain death from fire and shell
They did their job they did it well
The Fighting Fourth Commando

Some paid the price with battle scars
Some passed beyond all earthly bars
Their names are written in the stars
The Fighting Fourth Commando

Oh? Lord above, who art with us yet
When Time the healing hand hath set
Be with us Lord ?Lest we forget?
The Gallant Fourth Commando

Bill

Pete Rogers, son of LSgt Joe Rogers MM & nephew of TSM Ken McAllister. Both No2 Commando.
God and the Soldier, all men adore, In time of danger and not before.
When the danger is passed and all things righted, God is forgotten, and the Soldier slighted.
