Thanks for the reply!
 
It is 2.6cm by 0.8cm. I'll add a photo of the back soon, it's blank and just says 'sterling silver' I think (I'll check).

I haven't seen Cdn medal ribbons produced in this form of enamel before.  It reminds me of some of the Eastern European 'enamelled' ribbons but I suppose the sterling mark makes that unlikely'.  odd and intriguing.

    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni

Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
