2 Bar Fenian Raids 1866 and 1870 (Trout River)

2 Bar Fenian Raids 1866 and 1870 (Trout River)

Offered here is a Fenian Raid Medal with 2 bars for 1866 and 1870 Fenian Raids. Lt W.S. Maclean was a Sgt in 1866 with the Rockburn Inf Coy in Lower Canada. His Coy was absorbed by the 50th Borderer Bn when it was formed in the late 1860s and he was commissioned a Lieutenant. However, his medal is made out to him as a Sgt with the Inf Coy he served with in 1866. The 50th Bn was mobilized in the 1870 raids and MacLean was present at the battle of Trout River. This is confirmed in the references and medal rolls. A nice medal for an officer who saw some action in the Montreal area.

4th Canadian Mounted Rifles (CEF) WWI Helmet

4th Canadian Mounted Rifles (CEF) WWI Helmet

We offer here an example of the helmet worn by the 4th CMR (CEF) at the end of WWI. The Regiment had their helmets painted in French grey for the colour of the 3rd Division and had the unit cap badge soldered to the front as an identifier. This example is in rough shape, missing its liner and chinstrap, retaining about 70% of it paint, and cracked in two places with some dents. Not in the best condition, but has its original cap badge and priced right. The 4th CMR had an extremely good battle record and was highly decorated.
