CANADA GENERAL SERVICE MEDAL

CANADA GENERAL SERVICE MEDAL

Date Instituted: 1889.

Campaign: Canada 1866-70.

Description: The obverse has the diademed head of Queen Victoria and the inscription ‘VICTORIA REGINA ET IMPERATRIX’. The reverse bears the Canadian national flag flanked by two branches of maple leaves and the word ‘CANADA’ at the top. The suspender is straight with a claw type mount riveted to the medal.

Metal: Silver.

Size: 36mm.

Clasps: 'FENIAN RAID 1866', 'FENIAN RAID 1870' and 'RED RIVER 1870.


Naming: Normally found impressed in either square sans serif capitals or in upper and lower case Roman type. Some engraved examples are also known.

Comments: This medal was not authorised until nearly 30 years after the events for which it was awarded. It was never issued without a clasp and an example encountered with all three clasps is extremely rare as only 11 such awards were made and a complimentary one was sent to Colonel J. Cowie Nichols of New Zealand.
