Name of creator
Records of the Legion of Frontiersmen in Canada, compiled by BW Shandro from various sources, including museums, libraries, and archives across Canada, in effort to preserve the history of the Legion.
Scope and content
The archives consist of material compiled for Shandro's research purposes, including correspondence, other notes and textual material, various Legion publications dating back to the 1930s, photographs, artwork, and ephemera. Some items (Series 1, Folder 4; Folder 35; Series 2, Gazettes) contain French text. While some of the material relates to other commands, the bulk of the collection pertains to Canadian divisions of the Legion.
Immediate source of acquisition
This material was acquired from Barry William Shandro. Mr. Shandro is a graduate of the University of Alberta and the University of Ottawa. He was commissioned in the Canadian Armed Forces, served as a Cadet Instructor, qualified as a military parachutist, served as a Constable in the Edmonton Police, served as an Area Superintendent with St. John Ambulance Brigade, and served in both the Legion of Frontiersmen (Canadian Division) and the Legion of Frontiersmen of the Commonwealth.
Presently, Mr. Shandro is a member of the List of Reserve Officers, Legion of Frontiersmen of the Commonwealth. His historical research is an effort to contribute to the Legion of Frontiersmen and to preserve an almost lost piece of Canadian military history.
