The full moon is near
I arch into its full swell
Lick the dark it moves
Today is the 79th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid. In 1942, almost 5,000 Canadian soldiers, alongside British and American allies, landed on the shores around the towns of Dieppe, Puys and Pourville in occupied France. Local artist, activist and poet Mark Bradley has honoured his father, who was on those very shores, in the following poem: For My Father and His Comrades, Reunion 1976.

Thanks so much Vanessa! Dieppe is so important to Canadians who honour the men of Dieppe!
