Thank you so much for the reply. Great information!

We also did surch on my great great grandfather Jesse McClure and couldn't find any military recoreds. This makes sense. I will contact the musems and see what it takes to donate it.

I'm super curious of the value though, Regardless it belgons in a musem.

Thanks agin
Bev

Hello Mike,

Just an update on my Boer War collection, I am in the process of donating these items to the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. I'm just waiting for the curator to contact me, then we will road trip it out to Ottawa and make sure these items are kept safe for future generations and research. Thanks for all your help.

Take care
Bev
