Jack James was born in Hamilton, Ont. and lived Sharon, PA. Appears that he went to Canada and "attested" on 26 Jul 1917. I acquired this tunic from his daughter (who lived in the Sharon PA area) in 1982.
Refering to the UpClose #3 booklet "Khaki - Uniforms of the CEF" by Clive M Law, page 4 Figure 2, item B. I would identify this as the "Canadianised version of a British tunic" - it that correct?
The medal on the tunic is a City of Sharon WWI Service Medal.
I saw another thread in the Medals section about verifying the award of Brit War Medal and VM to CEF men. Can some provide more detail on the process for requesting MIC (medal index cards?)or the name of a modestly priced researcher who can do that?
I hope these photos post.
