Legion's Magazine's Last Post  "Since 1928, Legion Magazine has honoured those Canadians who have served their country by publishing in print short death notices for Royal Canadian Legion members with military backgrounds, Canadian war veterans and Legion members with police service. With the advent of the Internet, we have created as a historical archive for your free use a Last Post database that goes back to July/August 1993. It contains about 77,500 names, but this number will rise as further entries are published in print and added to the collection twice a year. We will gradually go back further in time as our resources permit."
