I've added another Dieppe veteran to the nominal roll. Sergeant Waddy started in 15th (Vancouver) Coast Brigade RCA and transferred over to 16th Light Anti-Aircraft as a Gunner to go overseas. He was taken prisoner at Dieppe and his story is told in his obituary from 2004 and in a Legion article posted in the 1942 yearbook.
Gunner John Robertson Wilson is a sad tale of a Gunner who took his life on the trip to Yorke Island as he was distraught over the loss of a girlfriend.
I also came across several names in various reports that have been entered with little detail. I'm sure more will come in the future. These include Captain AL Foreman, Second Lieutenant WJ Jeffrey, Gunner JM Barber, Gunner Dickinson and Gunner JJ Tolhurst.
The nominal roll is now at 1,401 names. Have I missed yours?
