TitleThe Veteran, 1925, vol. 5, no. 2 (October)
PublisherGreat War Veterans' Association of Newfoundland
Place of PublicationSt. John's, NL
Description"Official organ of the Great War Veterans' Association of Newfoundland" (title page, vol.1, no.1). The Veteran includes war stories, fiction, poetry, branch news and assorted articles. Several issues commemorate specific battles. In later years the magazine added content for women and children. "It was considered that the surest way to keep members in touch with each other would be to publish a periodical magazine, devoted to the interests of the returned soldiers and sailors [...] The magazine is before all an appeal. It is an appeal to the ex-soldier and sailor for whom it is primarily [compiled]. It is an appeal to the public, on whose aid and sympathy it relies -- an appeal that the aims and ideals of those Newfoundlanders who responded so readily to the call of the Mother Country should not lightly be forgotten, now that they are no longer shoulder to shoulder" (introduction, vol. 1, no. 1).
