A dramatic Return of the Canadians to Dieppe, on the Channel coast of Northern France, on September 1st 1944 when they captured the town without having to fire a single shot. This must have brought back to many of them terrible memories of the fiercely contested Reconnaissance in Force of August 19th 1941. Men of these same units of the 2nd Canadian Division, the Essex Scottish, the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry, and the Royal Regiment of Canada, had then been mown down on the beaches and in the streets. Now, as roars from the French greeted this historic return, other Dieppe units were approaching the South Saskatchewan Regiment, the Black Watch and the Toronto Scottish. At the great liberation parade on September 3rd in the Rue Claude Grouland (below) where General Crerar took the salute.
