Documenting Our History

Recently I inherited a few boxes and bags of Legion-related items from the Past President, Comrade Fred Rutledge.  For example, yesterday you were introduced to the flag of the Northern Zone of the Western Command of the Royal Canadian Legion.  Also included among those items was an old wooden Walford Marquise Invincible Tobacco box were these interesting printing press pieces.

Another item, among the treasurers, was this gavel.

The plaque reads:

Presented by
Ed Trayler P.S.C. 1987
Royal Canadian Legion

A picture of a similar item was submitted by Comrade Charlie Martin that had been handed down to him by his grandmother.

The plaque reads:

Imozene Martin
– President –
Ladies Auxiliary of San Francisco Post #25
Canadian Legion BESL – 1935

If you have any historical items related to the Canadian Legion of the British Empire Services League / Royal Canadian Legion from an of the former branches in the Bay Area, please submit them and we’ll feature them.
