The date was August 1942 and both the British and Canadian forces were in Dieppe, preparing for the assaults on Nazi Europe. Both Commanders had agreed to let their Sergeant Majors take their platoons into town one evening as a little R&R in recognition of recent hard work.

Brannigan thought this was a good price, turned 180 degrees, placed his baton under his arm and shouted “Company. Attention!”
