Modern Medals


  Two. Korea Medal (Canada) and UN Korea Medal clasp Korea. Korea and UN Korea named to SD 800329 E.H. JODOIN. Jodoin served during the Second World War in the Royal Canadian Navy, earning a 1939-45 Star, France and Germany Star, Italy Star, CVSM and clasp and War Medal (not included with group), and in 2nd Battalion Royal Canadian Regiment (RCR), 1 RCR and 2 CAU during his service with the CASF. His time in Korea seems to have been focused with 2 Canadian Administration Unit (2 CAU), although he returned to 2 RCR at the tail end of his time overseas in September 1952, and continued to serve with them on his return from Korea, earning his Parachute wings and serving an additional three years before taking his release in November 1955. A set of replacement medals were issued in 1973, according to his file, and the naming style on these suggests that they are the replacement medals. There is a Second World War MID emblem sewn to the ribbon of the UN Korea Medal, but no indication of any entitlement to an MiD for his service in either conflict. Medals are loose on ribbon, with Korea Medal (Canada) sporting a length of Korea Volunteer Service Medal ribbon in lieu of the correct ribbon for the medal. With electronic copy of service file.

One. Ontario Provincial Police Long Service Medal with clasp for 5 years of additional service. Named L.E. FOWLER 1961 in engraved capitals. Maker marked BOND BOYD on reverse of suspension. The Ontario Provincial Police Long Service Medal was instituted in 1949, and discontinued when it was replaced by the Police Exemplary Service Medal in 1983. Fowler's service is unresearched, but given the date of issue of the medal, which represents at least 25 years of service, he would have begun his service sometime between 1931 and 1936. Medal is on original wearing pin and ribbon. A very scarce early version of the OPP Long Service Medal.
