A Canada General Service Medal to the 44th Welland Battalion

A Canada General Service Medal to the 44th Welland Battalion - FENIAN RAID 1870 (Corporal W. Ashby, 44th. Bn.). Naming is officially impressed. Original ribbon, very light contact, extremely fine. Footnote: Ashby is listed as being a Private when he served with the 44th Welland Battalion of Infantry during the Fenian Raid of 1870 but was later promoted to Corporal, as evidenced by the naming on his medal. He is listed on page 122 of the "Canada General Service Medal Roll, 1866-70" by John Thyen.
