On the anniversary of the Battle of Dieppe on August 19, 1942, we look back to this image from the NY Times Canadian Photo Archive. Here, Colonel J.L. Ralston, Minister of National Defence, addresses men of the Third Canadian Division aboard a troopship at a Canadian port on August 1941 before setting sail for England to serve in the Second World War.
