Original Plan: Operation RUTTER Revised Plan: Operation JUBILEE Across the Channel The Raid on Dieppe


Revised Plan: Operation JUBILEE


10 July 1942

Operation RUTTER is renamed Operation JUBILEE.

Although the code-name of the operation was changed, the plan remained the same. Operation Jubilee was now set for August 19 under the command of a Canadian officer, General J.H. Roberts.

The operation called for the landing of units of the Second Canadian Division supported by British Commandos on three beaches along the French coast. Puys and Pourville, two minor beaches on the flank, were to be captured at 4:50 a.m. Half an hour later, two Canadian infantry battalions, the Essex Scottish Regiment and the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry, were to raid the main objective, Dieppe. An armoured unit, the Calgary Regiment, was to support the infantry on the main beach. In addition, British commandos were to land on the flanks and neutralize German artillery.

Although this would be a frontal assault on a fortified port, it was hoped that the surprise element would allow the Canadians time to overrun the German defenses.
