Return to Dieppe Series - Juno Beach, Courselles & Pegasus Bridge

Visits to Juno Beach, Courselles (location of the Canadian Cemetery at Bretteville-sur-Laize, where so many Rileys lay at peace) and Pegasus Bridge, where Canadian paratroopers landed and fought the night of 5/6 June 1944, rounded out the trip. It was truly an event of a lifetime for the participants, even those who had been over before.
