Dieppe and The Veterans

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

If you have been researching your family’s military past, then you might find the video documentary series The Veterans, of interest.  This project is oral history at its best, consisting of interviews with Veterans of WWll through to Afghanistan. 

As we mark the 70th anniversary of The Dieppe Raid on August 19th, it is perhaps fitting, and rather poignant, that the first interview of the series (included below), was with Pte. Jack Bennet, who was among the first wave of Canadian troops to hit the beach at Dieppe.
