    The Meritorious Service Medal to Canadians 1916-1921

    Post by Battalion Colours on Sat Nov 28, 2009 2:37 am

    This book presents for the first time, the complete roll of Canadians who were awarded the Immediate Meritorious Service Medal during the 1916-1928 period. Alphabetically arranged it gives all recipient details such as Serial Number, Rank, Unit, London Gazette date, Canada Gazette date and theatre of award, where known. An appendix also provides a listing of known "Long Service" awards of the Meritorious Service Medal to members of the Permanent Canadian Forces.

    The book has 238 pages, 11 color illustrations and is softbacked. It will cost $35 Canadian plus applicable shipping. Questions and orders can be directed to cefmsm@comcast.net



    I think this book is a 'must have' for all serious collectors of WW I Canadian Medals.

    Received my copy this week. Was able to confirm and update my RCD database with the information provided. Well done to the authors.

    I realize this thread is over 5 years old but I wonder if anyone knows if there are any copies of this book still available?

    Thanks

    Thank you for the offer Ed but I would prefer to find a copy form another source.

    Thanks for your comment Lorne but I was not offering to sell you a copy at any price. My comment was directed to others who might like a copy. Regret I should have made that clear in my post.

    I apologize to the mods and forum members it seems my last comment has obviously caused a problem.  This was not my intention nor do I have any desire to create a problem.  Has Ed has said more copies are available hopefully others will see this thread and contact him.

    All the best
