Got this one in today. Beautiful grouping to a Canadian Merchant Navy Seaman who served during WW2 and the Korean War.

It came with an amazing set of Service records. A total of 43 pages. Just read where this guy has been !!! And this doesn't include his Korean War Service which is not documented. The Ports he visited is a Who's Who of World Travel :love:

There are probably 50 posts, but I think it's well worth the effort to list it all. Amazing career.

ENJOY !
