    CANADIAN BOER WAR WELCOME HOME AND TRIBUTE MEDALS / MEDALLIONS

    Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen.....

    As requested after seeing the Toronto Welcome Home medal in my posting about Hammond / McGregor here are some pictures of Canadian Welcome Home medals and medallions.....

    One note all the Toronto medals that were issued to troops who enlisted in Toronto and did service South Africa were issued with named medals, medals with no name were sold to the general public.....

    Some are in George Brown's book some are not.....

    For those who are interested, Mike is referring to George Brown's book:
