SURVIVABILITY OF MEDALS TO CANADIAN SCOUTS

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

I've never owned one, but I found these in Gene Ursual's catalogue, Winter 1982-83.

Naming styles will not be reliable.

1. no clasp 407 Trooper C. Hill Canadian Scouts

2. CC, OFS TVL 392 Tpr. W.H. Langford Canadian Scouts

3. CC, OFS, TVL, SA01, SA02 Serjt. W.Y. Birrell Canadian Scouts

4. CC, OFS 620 Tpr. C. Wyatt Canadian Scouts

5. OFS 1323 Pte. C. Johnson Imperial Light Infantry (formerly Canadian Scouts)

I suspect that they might have gone to Wally West's collection, but where they went from there is anyone's guess.

Hello Mike, 

I do collect to the Boer War but I'm afraid I don't go on medal hunts to the Canadian units, mainly uniforms for me, but I did however see a QSA medal and grouping to a Canadian Scout that fought in the Boer War on e-medals a while ago, you've probably seen it but I might as well mention it in the slight chance you haven't. 

"38956 SJT: W.R. MARSHALL. CANADIAN SCOUTS"

The grouping is sold, but you can still view the listing here: 

https://www.emedals.com/north-america/canada/campaign-medals-pairs-groups/south-african-war-1899-1902/a-qsa-documentation-to-the-canadian-scouts-c0914

You've probably seen it as I said, but just wanted to post it anyway. Sorry I couldn't help out more, but if I see one around I'll be sure to tell you. 

I hope this finds you well. 

Best regards,

-Jamie
