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."

Awards to the Royal Canadian Navy  "This web site is dedicated to the Men and Women of the Royal Canadian Navy from 1910 to 1968. The majority of the site relates to the Honours and Awards of World War Two with some details on World War One, Korea, the post-war era and Canadians in the Royal Navy prior to World War One. Awards and citations to the Merchant Navy are also included."
