August 18, 1942 Dieppe Raid

9:30 p.m.
Convoy pulls out from Newhaven Harbour  The Craft moved slowly out to sea, escorted by various Torpedo Boats and small destroyers. They gained formation outside the Harbour and all that could be seen were the tiney tail lights of the Craft immediately in front. The canvas rigging which formed a covering, were all removed, all maps and papers were handed in – everything was in readiness for an immediate landing.
