Description: Le Régiment de la Chaudière was formed following the fusion of the Regiments of Dorchester and Beauce on the 15th of December, 1936. The regiment was sent to England in August 1941, but would see no action until the D-Day landings of June 1944. Le Régiment de la Chaudière came ashore at Bernières-sur-Mer after The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, surprising the locals who hadn't expected to find francophone troops in the liberating forces. It would be the only francophone unit to participate in Operation Overlord with the Commando Kieffer. The regiment also participated in actions which took place on the Breskens peninsula between the 6th of October and the 3rd of November 1944.
