    Default Royal Canadian Legion Magazine, past issues

    I was wondering if anyone has past issues of the Legion Magazine. Researching Danes in the RCAF I have found a number of "last post" entries matching my servicemen, and wondered if the printed version would hold more information.

    Specifically it regards the following persons and issues:
    ANDERSEN, Barbara, RCAF(WD), November/December 2008
    http://www.legionmagazine.com/en/lastpost/details.asp?LastPostData_ID=260067

    ANDERSEN, Pilot Officer Eiler V., September/October 1998
    http://www.legionmagazine.com/en/lastpost/details.asp?LastPostData_ID=17183

    HANSEN, Knute, March/April, 2005
    http://www.legionmagazine.com/en/lastpost/details.asp?LastPostData_ID=187907

    JENSEN, Captain Alfred, Royal Norwegian Air Force, March/April 2011

    JENSEN, Aircraftsman Gronning A., February 1986

    SONDERGAARD, Flight Lieutenant Andrew C., November 1988

    As you know, "Last Post" obituaries now appear on-line back to 1985, and the process of recording them from earlier years continues. The contents of the on-line entries are virtually the same as what appeared in the magazine itself (if the magazine had a service number, the on-line version did as well). The entries were (and are) based on information supplied by the Royal Canadian Legion local branches, and some have been sketchy. For example, not all submissions include service numbers, and the date of death is sometimes only something like "May 1989" rather than a complete, specific date.

    Hugh,
    Thank you. I guess then that it is more a simple notice of these persons' death than notices giving a short biographical account. It was the latter, that I was looking for.
