Legionary Obits 1958-1966Legionary Magazine (now Legion Magazine) has always carried "Last Post" notices - chiefly Canadian army but with many RCAF. The following comprises some 680 names that appeared in issues from January 1958 to July 1966 (the issue of October 1961 happened to have no air force obituaries). They are short, often incomplete, but perhaps better than nothing. I hope to add to these lists (both pre-1958 and post-July 1966), but it is a slow task, usually performed at the end of working day when I am otherwise unwilling to open a new archives box. The date is as given in the magazine, rendered for data entry (i.e. 640903 = date of death being 3 September 1964) and is sometimes incomplete (the entry for BAKER, Charles Martin, gives his date of death only as 630900, meaning the magazine gave the month (September) and year (1963) but not the precise day). Similarly, "Legionary 6411" indicates this was the November 1964 issue that carried the notice, "5811" indicates November 1958, etc. The magazine entries normally indicate the town where the person died (or at least the town where he held Royal Canadian Legion membership) but I have not transcribed such information for the sake of expediting the compilation.

National Archives at Kew - Help needed.Dear All, I am going to Germany to place a memorial to the crew of Lancaster DV329 (KM-W) of 44 Sqn. My Great Uncle was the pilot and killed on 23/11/43.
