Cadets, parents and staff of 38 Cross Lake Cadet Corps, Cross Lake Manitoba. This is a remarkable story in itself, each summer cadets have attended Vernon since the formation of the corps in 2005, subsequently the dedicated parents and staff of the corps have traveled some 2000 kilometres to attend the final parades.  (VACSTC/Wayne Emde)

This day in Canadian Military History - 

19 August 1942
Battle of Dieppe. The raid on the French port by the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division is a disaster from the beginning, with tanks getting stuck on the pebbled beach and the infantry being pinned down along the seawall of the resort town. Of the 4963 Canadians who go ashore today, 2211 return to Britain after the assault is called off. The rest are either killed or marched off into prisoner-of-war camps.

Vernon's main parade square was built in the mid 1950s and was named Dieppe Square in honour of those men of Aug 19, 1942.
