Dieppe Canadian War Cemetery

A few shots today that were taken last week at the Dieppe Canadian War Cemetery. This is the final resting place of a large number of Windsorites who never came home. If you’ve never been to a War cemetery in Europe, it’s hard to describe, and the pictures don’t do it justice. It’s very moving to walk through and see row after row, and especially in this case, almost all with the same date – August 19, 1942. The rest of the photos in this post I am just posting as a visual tour.

Have a great weekend everyone. See you back here Monday. Also don’t forget this weekend is Doors Open Windsor, get out and see some of Windsor’s finest buildings in person, all free of charge.
