Newspapers, Magazines and Shipboard Newspapers



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
