Product Description

Review

Review with On Her Majesty's Service:

"...two timely, comprehensive and well-written volumes. Christopher McCreery has once again provided us with valuable reference books on the Canadian Crown."

(Canadian Monarchist News)

For more than 40 years Canadian orders, decorations, and medals have been used to recognize exemplary citizens for their outstanding contributions to our country and to the world. Although Canada is a relatively young country, we are fortunate to have one of the most comprehensive honours systems in the world.

With the Order of Canada at its centre, the Canadian honours system includes the Victoria Cross, Star of Courage, Order of St. John, General Campaign Star, Canadian Forces Decoration, and a wide variety of other awards.

From the honours of New France to the many British medals awarded to Canadians prior to 1967, the various elements of the modern Canadian honours system are explained. This short book, rich with illustrations and photos, provides an easy-to-understand overview of Canadian honours, who has received them, and how they are bestowed. The book also includes a wearing guide.

About the Author

Christopher McCreery has served as an advisor to the British and Canadian governments on questions related to honours policy. His books The Canadian Honours System and The Order of Canada are the principal works on the history of honours in Canada. McCreery, a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society, lives in Ottawa.
