    Beautiful. That is one extremely nice Boer War/WWI group.
    It should be fairly easy to research this man.........

    lots of hits here: https://www.google.com/search?q=Surg...m=122&ie=UTF-8

    Wiki notes his promotion to the surgeon general rank in sept 1915 - he may have qualified for the 1914-15 star too, if he was overseas before December 1915, you should check his service records, it might be an incomplete group. Solved it myself - if you look here at chapter III page 25 he is with the first contingent 1914, so definately missing a 1914 star, too bad. http://www.archivecdbooks.ca/Samples/CA0224Samp.pdf

    You have a fairly significant (and valuable) group there, he was head of the medical services for the Canadian Army in WW I, I suspect it is missing some other orders too, hard to imagine he didn't get a DSO or a CB. Yup - CMG (sorry Commamder St Michael & St George) here Viewing Page 2521 of Issue 29982

    I do not pretend to be anywhere near an expert on these medals but I am very appreciative of their rarity and special place in history, my compliments sir!

    You might follow up where you bought it and see if there are any other loose bits or paperwork around.
