Edwin Graham Milton Anderson

 Mount Royal University in Calgary has started a bursary program in honour of alumnai who were killed in action during times of war.  A member of our family, Pilot Officer Edwin Graham Milton Anderson, was unfortunately one of those killed in the second world war.  More about the Military Memorial Bursary Program
In 2011, Mount Royal’s centennial year, we created a memorial bursary in the name of each of our fallen soldiers. As our official sesquicentennial initiative to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, we seek to raise funds in order to create permanent endowments for each of these bursaries.
These Military Memorial Bursaries will honour the ultimate sacrifice made by the fallen members of our Mount Royal family, while furthering the dreams of 28 Mount Royal students, every year, in perpetuity. 

Jim Anderson was a member of the RCAF Marine Squadron, and was the skipper of the Montagnais (M234) high speed crash boat, rescuing crews from downed aircraft on the British Columbia coast during WWII. The area they covered were the waters off the Alaskan panhandle and the BC coast.

Inar Anderson was a Lieutenant in the army during WWI and writes about some of his personal experiences in this article.

Pilot Officer Edwin Graham Milton Anderson Died Sept. 1, 1941. Edwin 'Graham' Anderson, the first Mount Royal student to be killed in action during the Second World War, was born in 1920 and attended Mount Royal in 1940, when he was elected president of the High School class. The Chinook Yearbook called him “a modest and shy student” and remarked he was “a loyal enthusiast of the air force after the Christmas Exams.” Upon leaving Mount Royal, Anderson enlisted as a Pilot Officer in the 102 Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force and was killed on Sept. 1, 1941. Pilot Officer Anderson is buried in Schaffen Communal Cemetery in Diest, Belgium.  'Graham' was shot down and killed on duty with the Royal Canadian Airforce (RCAF) in World War II.  He was the pilot of a Whitley bomber that was shot down on a mission over Europe, 31 August, 1941.  Photo of Graham
