Description

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.

Author Biography

Christopher McCreery has served as an advisor to the Canadian and British governments on questions relating to honours and holds a doctorate in Canadian history from Queen's University, Kingston. He has written numerous articles on Canadian orders, decorations, and medals.
