Notes
Sergeant Morris Greenberg of Toronto, Ontario, was killed in action at Dieppe according to an official report. Sergeant Greenberg enlisted on the second day of the war and was with the first Canadians sent to Iceland in June 1940. Later, he proceeded to Aldershot, England, and as corporal, instructed newly arrived men and Home Guard units in the use of small arms. Then he was sent as a battle instructor to Roland Castle, near Portsmouth, and later he was recalled to his battalion and participated in the Dieppe attack. Frederick Griffin, war correspondent for the Toronto Star, wrote of Sergeant Greenberg: “During the Dieppe raid, Sergeant Morris Greenberg... won the praise of his officers and fellow soldiers after he helped many wounded companions safely back from battle under intense fire.” A brother, Sergeant Irving Greenberg, served overseas with the 48th Highlanders and later with an anti-aircraft unit which downed a number of German planes.
