This is from my Uncle who was a Gunner in the Canadian Army (9th Armoured Regiment (B.C.D)).

He fought through Sicily / Italy / France / Holland / Belgium and into Germany (1943 through 1945).

Hello Darrell,

It's great to have family stuff!

The tunic looks to be in good nick, was it his war time tunic or one issued for smarter dress?

What's the maple leaf bar for?

Tony,

Don't know much about the tunic.

The bar with the maple leaf ... that was for the Canadian Volunteer Medal (seen on the medal bar at top of thread).

The silver maple leaf (a maple leaf bar on the ribbon of the medal) or the Maple Leaf cluster on the ribbon bar .. was for 60 days service outside of Canada.
