Operation Jubilee, Dieppe Area 19th August 1942
Sgt Mjr Stockdale took command of the troop after all his officers had
been killed or became casualties. Sgt Stockfdale, while leading a bayonette
charge, had part of his foot blown away by an enemy stick-bomb.
Although in very great pain, Sgt Stockdale continued to engage the enemy.
He set a splendid example, and was an inspiration to the men.
