Jayne has been working to pay tribute to the men who landed with her dad. August 19, 2017, will be the 75th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid. The goal of her project, Dieppe: Blue Beach -- Every Man Remembered, is to pay tribute to every soldier of Toronto's Royal Regiment of Canada who landed on that day, with the goal of producing a not-for-profit memorial book. She is searching for families of these men in order to obtain photos and stories that will allow us to honour each man so his sacrifice is not forgotten. Do you know someone who was a member of Toronto's Royal Regiment of Canada? Please contact Jayne if you do.
