During the first naval landing operation that involved Canadians, the landing took place just across the English Channel from Great Britain. On August 19th of 1942, 5,000 Canadian troops supported by 1,000 British Commandos and 50 U.S Rangers attempted to make landfall at the Dieppe port. Of those 5,000 Canadians that were sent over, only 2,210 returned to Great Britain. The raid was a disaster for the allied forces, and 916 Canadians lost their lives on that day. “Although extremely valuable lessons were learned in the Raid on Dieppe, a steep price was paid. Of the 4,963 Canadians who embarked for the operation, only 2,210 returned to England, and many of these were wounded. There were 3,367 casualties, including 1,946 prisoners of war; 916 Canadians lost their lives.”
