Title: (7) Pair (BWM, Victory): 700860 Pte J. Duncan. 43-Can.Inf.:
Item
Description:
Medals loose, some contact mks, generally GVF James Duncan, born Scotland 15 Apr 1876, attested at Winnipeg on 18 Jan 1916 at age 39, becoming an original member of the 101st Bn (WLI). He served in the field with 43rd Bn (Cameron Highlanders) [9th Bde, 3rd Div]. Note that the service number impressed on his BWM is "669121", being the number assigned to Pte Herbert Burnfield Duncan, who enlisted in the 166th Bn (QOR) at Toronto on 24 Jan 1916, also at the age of 39. The erroneous number on James Duncan's BWM is probably the result of their names being adjacent on the list used by the operator of the naming machine. Sold with copy of attestation paper from NAC web site.
Price: $ 125.00
