A First War Pair to the Canadian Overseas Railway Construction Corps

A First War Pair to the Canadian Overseas Railway Construction Corps - 1914-15 Star (241 SPR: E.E. WILANDER. CAN:RLY:CONS.C.); and British War Medal (241 SJT. E.E. WILANDER. C.O.R.C.C.). Naming is officially impressed. Un-mounted, original ribbons, dark patina and edge nicks on the BWM, light contact, near extremely fine. Footnote: Errick Eugene Wilander was born on May 19, 1892 in Alby, Sweden. He signed his Attestation Paper as a Private (241) with the Canadian Railway Construction Corps, on March 26, 1915, in Regina, Saskatchewan, at the age of 22, naming his net-of-kin as his mother, Helen Wilander of Waldeck, Saskatchewan, stating that he had no previous military service, that he was not married and that his trade was that of a Labourer with the Canadian Pacific Railway. In the winter of 1915, the Imperial War Office requested that the Canadian Government send two railway construction companies to France. The Canadian Overseas Railway Construction Corps was organized on May 15, 1915, and comprised about five hundred men from the construction forces of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. The unit sailed June 14, 1915 and landed in France two months later. Wilander survived the war.
