Complete Royal Canadian Navy group belonging to J.H. Tanton






Complete Royal Canadian Navy group belonging to J.H. Tanton (V-12301). Group includes his tommy helmet, officers visor, both his naval tunics, various patches and insignia, a larger Royal Canadian Navy flag, his personal photo album, and other various items. This group was given to me by family friends to display, and no medals were included. A very nice example of a complete and untouched group with photographic records and a wide variety of militaria.

Exceptional WW1 Canadian Expeditionary Forces uniform group belonging to Corporal George Gibson (114575)







Exceptional WW1 Canadian Expeditionary Forces uniform group belonging to Corporal George Gibson (114575). Gibson signed up in Saskatoon in February 1915, and served overseas where he was wounded on August 16th 1916. Gibson survived and settled in Saskatchewan after the war, working as a truck driver and at one point was Mayor and fire chief of the town of Wiseton. The group includes a 44th C.E.F tunic and officers cap with matching cap badges/collars, and a Canadian Light Horse tunic with 19th Alberta Dragoons insignia, buttons and cloth regimental badge. The C.L.H. tunic comes with pants and puttees, and has the War Department mark on the interior of the jacket. Interestingly, the 44th C.E.F tunic belonged to one of George’s many brothers- Charles, Bob, Alex, Peter, James and John. Several of his brothers died during World War One, and the tunic is unnamed. Canadian WW1 uniform groups are seldom found complete with history relating to them, making this a very special group.
