"The special report on military chaplaincy in the October  issue omitted reference to Canada's most famous chaplain. Major John Foote won the Victoria Cross for his heroics at the invasion of Dieppe on Aug. 19, 1942. And he won it without firing a shot". "Foote was born and raised in the village of Madoc, Ont., and graduated from the Presbyterian Theological College of Montreal in 1934, subsequently serving the church in Fort Coulonge, Que., and Port Hope, Ont. Released from German captivity in 1945, he continued as a chaplain for three more years. He later became an Ontario cabinet minister responsible for the province's prison system in the Conservative government of Leslie Front. He died in Cobourg, Ont., on May 2, 1988, at the age of 84".
