1928, Patrol Sergeant Scott in Winter Patrol Dress

I thought I would share an article here that those who frequent this board may find interesting. It recounts the story of Henry Earl Scott, a Toronto Police officer who won the Military Medal and King's Police and Fire Services Medal for Gallantry - the only Canadian police officer to hold both awards (one Canadian firefighter was also decorated with both). Interestingly both deeds were done without firing a shot and the incidents happened decades apart, though he had long and distinguished service in between. Scott never had children and his memory faded into obscurity until last year when some other research uncovered this interesting man.

A great story!  And he was from Beeton, just down the road from my home in Alliston.  A couple local boys joined the Cyclists, who often did duty in towns, helping the MPs direct traffic and man check points, so his police experience would have proved useful, though the bicycles themsleves were less of a success.

'A good cop'!
