On August 19th, 1942, Canadian and British troops attacked the German held port of Dieppe in Normandy. Nine years later, two women on holiday near Dieppe would experience a ghostly re-enactment of the event.
Just before dawn on August 19th, 1942, Canadian and British troops attacked the German held port of Dieppe in Normandy, in a full-scale rehearsal for D-Day. It was a raid from which the Allies learned much, but at a terrible cost. Of the more than 6000 men engaged - 3623 were casualties.
Close to dawn nine years later on August 4th, 1951, two English women on holiday near Dieppe were awakened by the sound of gunfire. What happened in the next three hours was like listening to a battle trapped in time. The women heard a frighteningly accurate repetition of events from nine years prior. Their account of the savage battle for Dieppe was confirmed by military records.
The two women were staying at the seaside village of Puys near Dieppe. Toronto's Royal Regiment had been virtually destroyed at Puys. Though no-one else in the area heard anything unusual, a British Society for Psychical Research investigation in 1952 deemed the event a "genuine psychic experience."
