My Regiment brought the Churchills ashore at Dieppe. We have one or two surviving members, and its always a treat to hear them tell their tales, and its sad that each year we have a few less of the old guard around.
There's all sorts of stuff that gets passed down through living history that didn't make it into the books, like the fact that most of the tanks that made it into town were recalled to the beach in order to provided cover for the withdrawal, and that the crews fought their tanks until black on ammo, and then with small arms until they were empty, and only then did they surrender. Hard men, those tankers. Gave everything they had to make sure everyone else got off the beach and then spent the remainder of the war in shackles.
