Product Description

Review

Since the creation of the Canadian honours system in 1967, more than 250,000 Canadians have been rewarded, yet little has been written about it. This full-colour illustrated book recounts the history of Canada's various national orders, decorations, and medals, from New France's Croix de St. Louis, through the British Order of the Bath, to modern Canadian awards such as the General Campaign Star.

Each award in the modern Canadian honours system is examined in detail, including historical background, design, and criteria for bestowal. With special chapters on heraldry, protocol, and the proper mounting and wear of medals, it is an essential reference for anyone interested in Canadian honours.



...a comprehensive guide to medals and decorations ranging from the Order of Canada to the Victoria Cross. There's hardly a page without colour pictures, and the book's as handy for browsing as it is for reference. - Artsforum, October 1, 2005

An excellent book. High quality production and well researched and detailed. Not just a complete up to date list of Canadian honours, includes almost every detail anyone might want to find. This includes very interesting historical background information on the formation of the Canadian honours system such the decisions that went into creating each honour as well as pictures of prototypes. Numerous appendixes including a full ribbon chart. Everything for any collector, researcher, or anyone interested in Canadian orders and medals. I highly recommend it.
