Good Morning Mervyn.......

To answer our questions...... Yes the Association does exist but is now called The Dominion of Canada Rifle Association (D.C.R.A.), just a little change in the order of the name..... No the prize is no longer awarded and from what I understand was only awarded 3 times.....

The medallion is from my collection of Boer War Medallions which I will post one every so often.......

Mike
