Mounted to a suspension with swing bar pinback, as worn by the veteran, original ribbons, dark patinas on the silver medals, light contact, near extremely fine. Accompanied by his original Discharge Certificate, his Corporation of the City of Montreal Identification Card (signed and dated February 10, 1935, number "1935", 64 mm x 108 mm) and a newspaper article with photo (announcing McNaught's wounding in the Italian theatre).   Footnote: Duncan McNaught Jr. was the son of Duncan McNaught Sr. (born May 16, 1884 in Loch Gilphead, Ayre, Scotland) and Mary McNaught of Montreal, Quebec. He had two brothers, Kenneth McNaught with the Royal Canadian Ordnance Corps and Gordon McNaught, along with one sister, Mrs. Evelyn Grandison. His father was a Head Stableman by trade and a veteran of the First World War, enlisting with No. 1 Construction Battalion (1081642) on July 3, 1916 in Montreal, having had three years' previous service with the 5th Argylls and was married to Mary McNaught. After the start of the Second World War, D-9501 Gunner Duncan McNaught Jr. followed in his father's military service footsteps, enlisting with the Royal Canadian Artillery on June 26, 1940 in Montreal, Quebec. Shortly afterwards he married Miss Gladys Freda Bilow of Toronto, Ontario. He soon left for the European theatre and was wounded while serving with the Royal Canadian Artillery in Italy. He returned to Canada and was discharged on May 12, 1944 at No. 4 District Depot in Montreal, "his services being no longer required, on being returned to civil employment", credited with having served in Canada, England and the Mediterranean Area.
