The tainted history of Canada's Ross rifle lives on
Ottawa Citizen
When soldiers in the throes of battle discard their rifles and pluck a different weapon from the hands of dead allies, there's clearly a serious problem, writes John Ward of the Canadian Press news service. So it was with the Ross rifle, the weapon that Canadian soldiers took with them to the start of the First World War a century ago. It was the brain-child of Sir Charles Ross, a wealthy Scottish-born engineer and inventor who offered it to the Canadian government as a military firearm well before the war began.

CBC News
It's been 72 years since Britain and its allies attacked the French port of Dieppe, and Maurice Lawson still cries a little sometimes when he thinks about it.

He was 20 and full of bravado, a native east-ender from working class Hamilton, and as he rode in on a boat as part of Operation Jubilee, there was little time for nerves.
