For Posterity's Sake
A Royal Canadian Navy Historical Project
Newspapers, Magazines and Shipboard Newspapers
Shipboard newspapers were the creation of various members of each ship's company. The editors published news of daily / weekly events on the ship - sometimes factual, sometimes slightly modified for entertainment purposes. Regardless of whether or not the stories were fact or fiction, these "rags" were great moral boosters onboard ship. Below are a few issues of ship board newspapers that were submitted for posterity's sake.
HMCS ATHABASKAN 219- Christmas edition - Dec 1951
HMCS CHAUDIERE 235 - 6 Issues of the "Hot Pot" - Dec 1963
HMCS MONNOW K441 - 25 Issues of "The MONNOWLOG" - from 09 Oct 1944 - 23 Apr 1945
