The Dieppe Raid was an Allied assault on the German-occupied port of Dieppe, France on August 19, 1942, during the Second World War. The main assault lasted less than six hours until strong German defenses and mounting Allied losses forced its commanders to call a retreat.
Over 6,000 infantrymen, predominantly Canadian, were supported by The Calgary Regiment of the 1st Canadian Tank Brigade and a strong force of Royal Navy and smaller Royal Air Force landing contingents. It involved 5,000 Canadians, 1,000 British troops, and 50 United States Army Rangers.
Objectives included seizing and holding a major port for a short period, both to prove that it was possible and to gather intelligence. Upon retreat, the Allies also wanted to destroy coastal defences, port structures and all strategic buildings. The raid had the added objectives of boosting morale and demonstrating the firm commitment of the United Kingdom to open a western front in Europe.
Virtually none of these objectives were met. Allied fire support was grossly inadequate and the raiding force was largely trapped on the beach by obstacles and German fire. Less than 10 hours after the first landings, the last Allied troops had all been either killed, evacuated, or left behind to be captured by the Germans. Instead of a demonstration of resolve, the bloody fiasco showed the world that the Allies could not hope to invade France for a long time. Some intelligence successes were achieved, including electronic intelligence. ------------------------------------------------

Recently I lost my best friend from high school. As you can imagine I was deeply saddened by this news as Nick had for so long served as a loyal friend through my very troublesome adolescent years. As two young lads getting up to as much mischief as we could, Nick always knew when to draw the line. To say he saved my ass a few times would be an understatement but then that was just Nick’s way. Whenever Nick was around I knew I was safe… We ALL did.
In 2006 Nick enlisted in the army as an engineer. That was about the time the world joined Facebook & Nick & I lost touch. He was never one to talk much about his life so social media never really meant much to him. However over the coming years Nick became a very highly decorated SAS soldier serving tours in Afghanistan & the Middle East.
On 8th May 2019, Nick was killed during a training exercise after jumping from a helicopter & falling several stories. He will forever be remembered as an outstanding solider, a loving father & a friend to many.
But the point I would really like to make is this: We live in a time where the meaning of masculinity gets thrown around, challenged & trashed more than a ginger step-child to the point that we’re led to believe that it’s toxic to be masculine; My friend Nick held himself to a higher standard, guided by a strong set of morals & core values. A provider. A protector who fought for what is right & just. Strong & of good courage. Yes, his death brought me to my knees in tears. My heart breaks for his young children. But the soldier I knew was as kind & gentle as he was fierce & heroic. A true exemplar of the masculine man.
