Good Morning Everyone.....

As promised on an earlier posting I stated that I would post some photos of an Original Welcome Home Certificate from the City of Ottawa.....

They also issued a locket and the write up for that can be seen at:

Good Morning David.....

I have two in my collection (One in great condition photo and one being held together with cello tape) and I have only ever seen one other in a museum.....

Mike,

The one in the photo looks to be in super condition. A very worthy purchase.

Best wishes

Good Morning David....

Yes it is in mint condition and I also have a photo of the man to whom it was given but I am sorry to say I do not have his medal and it has not shown up on the market yet.....
