Thank you!! I’m on the right track then!! I’m surprised my dad never showed it to me, we had done some research into Harry’s life. His medals were apparently stolen in the 50’s, but were sold in an online auction just a couple years before we started researching our family.
Might the monogram be NWCo ?
In some way then referencing the North West Company the fur trading campany of the late 1700s.
Their coat of arms features a tree with beaver to right below and PERSEVERANCE over.
Does this significantly predate Strathcona's use of this motif ?
Is there a Canadian explanation for the word Hundale ?
