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 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 1984. It currently contains over 200,000 names but this number will rise as further entries are published in print and updated with the newest entries throughout the year. We will gradually go back further in time as our resources permit.

All Canadian veterans are eligible for inclusion in the Last Post. Last Post is published as a free service in recognition of those who served their country and to allow readers to learn of the passing of comrades with whom they have served. The database, found at, is reserved for these groups: 1) Canadian citizens and Commonwealth subjects who were ordinary members of The Royal Canadian Legion at the time of death; 2) life members who were previously ordinary members; 3) Canadian veterans who were not Legion members at the time of death.

The database has historical value and can be searched by name, date of death, unit or period of service.

Forms for filling in the information are available at Legion branches. Those submitting notices are urged to be thorough and accurate. Type or print to ensure legibility. Submit notices promptly to ensure timely publication.

As long as the date of death is within the time period of entries on the website (1984 to present), the notice will be added to the database and appear in the printed edition. Notices within a year of the date of death can be submitted by family members, but entries that are more than a year old must come from a Royal Canadian Legion branch.
