eturn to Dieppe Series - Hill 67

The town's mayor (of Caen) presented the Regiment with a special medal of commemoration after a short service at the RHLI plaque installed in 2000. This was after a short service at Hill 67, between Caen and Verrieries, where several wartime Rileys were presented with French Government Veterans' medals. From Hill 67, one can look out over a vast area of Normandie - within easy visual range are Verrieres, Caen, Falaise and so many more names sacred to the RHLI and the Canadian Army. One cannot appreciate the small scope of so important a battlefield without visiting it first-hand.
