BRECHE DES ACADIENS

Le matin de 6 juin 1944, le NORTH SHORE REGIMENT, unite des Forces
Canadiennes originaire du Nouveau Brunswick, participe au Debarquement
dans le secteur de JUNO BEACH, sur la plage voisine baptisée NAN RED
avant de liberer SAINTE-AUBIN SUR MER.
De nombreux jeunes Acadiens, engages dans l'armee canadienne,
decouvrent alors, pour la liberer, la terre de leurs ancetres.
Neuf d'entre eux perdent la vie ce 6 juin 1944, un autre le lendermain.
La BRECHE DES ACADIENS reste pour nous tous le symbole de l'attachement
et de la reconnaisance que nous leur portoons.
