1866 Lieutenant-Colonel Cecil Merritt (entered RMC in 1925) commanded the South Saskatchewan Regiment that took part in the Dieppe Raid on August 19, 1942. Merritt landed with his soldiers at the village of Pourville, France, and repeatedly led groups of his men across a bridge that was under heavy fire before heading up attacks that cleared nearby enemy positions. Although wounded, he organized the withdrawal of his battalion and mounted a rear guard action that allowed most of them to get back to England, although he himself would be captured and spend the remainder of the war in a POW camp. Merritt would earn the Victoria Cross for his great bravery.
