This example is in my opinion a fantastic example, as it is a Victorian one, which not only retains its original case, it has most of its original Gold Gilt. It could I suppose use a cleaning, but I am outside my comfort zone in this regard, as with my luck I would damage it.
This example, was issued to Lt. Col. T.L. Alexander, 71st Regiment.
Thomas Little Alexander seems to have had quite the life and career. Much research is digging is required to uncover and verify it all.
If anyone has any information on Lt. Col Alexander, C.O. of the 71st York Battalion circa 1900, it would be most helpful to me.
As for the reference to the BUTT NUT, I am looking for just that, the nut that secures the butt stock of a MkI Bren. I have a MkII nut but it is totally different and will not work.
In my original post, prior to me editing it, I gave some incorrect information regarding the naming of these Decorations. My statement claiming these were issued un-named, was in fact very incorrect. This Decoration is issued named. I mixed up this Decoration with the Territorial Decoration, that was not issued to Canadians.
All sorted now, photos are in the next reply.
