    SURVIVABILITY OF MEDALS TO CANADIAN SCOUTS

    Post by qsamike on Sat Aug 28, 2010 8:39 pm

    GOOD EVENING GENTLEMEN......

    I Have decided to take on the project of compiling a list of all the existing Queen's South Africa Medals either in singles or in groups named to.....

    THE CANADIAN SCOUTS

    I would ask the assistance of all members of the forum if they can provide me with the following information.....

    1. Name, Rank and Regimental Number (Note: Some medals were issued without a Number).

    2. Style of Name Unitt: CAN. SCOUTS, CANAD'N SCOUTS, CANADIAN SCOUTS

    3. Bars on the medal.

    4. If part of a Group the other medals in the group.

    5. Country of Location. I do not want any personal information just Country.

    All information will be kept confidential and I may possibly be able to pass on some information to you......

    Thank you in advance for any assistance that you can provide.....

    Mike
