  1. I had the honour to serve with the Essex & Kent Scottish as their Regular Support Officer in the 1980s. One year, I attended a reunion of the Essex Scottish who had fought at Dieppe and later after D-Day. It was notable that there were two separate regiments that emerged — those who became prisoners, and those who joined after Dieppe and fought in Northwest Europe. They rarely spoke to each other. The demons of war last for a long time.
