The CMEA records the deaths of all members of the CME Family as we are informed. Over the past year, a small group of members has searched newspapers and online resources across the country to find members whose obituaries were not brought to our attention. As a result, we have added the names of nearly 200 departed comrades whose service might otherwise have been forgotten. Many of these were veterans of the Second World War, who on returning to Canada simply returned to their hometowns and got on with their lives seeking no special recognition from anyone.
Those who we lost in 2014 and 2015 are listed on this page, along with those whose Last Post came through our research. CME Family members and friends are encouraged to take a quick look as a tribute to these men and women.
You are also invited to browse our Last Pages where you can browse all departed comrades listed by year.
Comments should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

It was November again, and for the soldiers of 4 Engineer Support Regiment (4 ESR) from Gagetown, N.B., that meant spending another month in the sunny confines of the Base Gagetown Range and Training Area for Exercise NIHILO SAPPER; however, this year the exercise was different, even "epic." The Latin phrase, "Ex Nihilo," means to make something out of nothing.
Seventy-five Canadian soldiers will be learning to survive in an arctic environment in the Bathurst area.
Members of 4 Engineer Support Regiment are taking part in a "Basic Winter Warfare" course on Crown Land west of Bathurst off Rio Grande Road.
"It's kind of like basic training, but to go and do it in an arctic environment," Lt. Daniel Doucet, course officer, said in a recent interview with Information Morning Moncton.

Members of the military are having their survival skills put to the test.
During Exercise Frosted Flier, pilots and air crew as well as members of the Ground Search and Rescue (GSAR) team are dropped into the woods for 72 hours and tasked with surviving for two nights and three days.
Participants are required to build a fire, a shelter and a signal fire.
The participants are watched closely by GSAR instructors to provide a safe and secure environment to teach winter survival.
A fresh batch of Canadian military trainers is about to deploy to eastern Europe, and the outgoing commander says his soldiers took a lot of their own notes in addition to handing out assignments to Ukrainian troops.
Lt.-Col. Jason Guiney, who is about to end his five-month stint, says even though their training bases are 1,200 kilometres away from the fighting in the breakaway eastern regions, his troops have learned a lot about the nature of the conflict.
The Chronicle Herald
It was after a training exercise at CFB Gagetown in New Brunswick that Nova Scotia army veteran Robert Grant first noticed the ringing.
"I was instructing on the use of a grenade on the grenade range. It bounced too close, and the sound seemed to rattle around the inside of my helmet. The concussion made me lose my hearing. Twenty minutes to a half-hour later, it came back. But I never lost the ringing."
The first of the Canadian troops sent to Lebanon and Jordan to help process Syrian refugees destined for Canada have returned home, saying the smiles on the faces of young Syrian children made it worthwhile.
"All it takes is seeing one little one the same age as my daughter — smiling because they are going to Canada," said Major Drew Willis, who was among 68 soldiers who arrived to waiting family members recently at Base Gagetown in New Brunswick.
Going after terrorists has never been a simple or straight-forward affair, but does it really require something called "laser doppler vibrometry?" Affirmative, according to the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office, which recently released its new broad agency announcement. This year's edition of the annual announcement, which outlines the various gadgets and tech that the office is looking to buy or build, reads like a prop list for a Marvel Comics movie — and yet they're also technologies that could eventually make their way into wider commercial use.
