The ceremony at the Dieppe Veterans Memorial Park on Beach Boulevard honoured the memory of those who fought in the disastrous raid that took nearly a thousand Canadian lives.

Nearly 600 of the 5,000 Canadian soldiers who took part in the raid were from the RHLI and nearly 200 RHLI soldiers died on the beach in what has been described as a tragic waste of lives.

"I was only 20 when I was laying on the beach dodging bullets," Curry recalled. "I can remember the guys screaming who were wounded and I'm thinking 'Boy, I wish I was someplace else.'"
