CSEF War Medal to Russian-Canadian

British War Medal 14-1918 (3182365 PTE. I. WENER. C.S.E.F.). Naming is officially impressed, extremely fine. Footnote: Isadore Wener, a natural born Jewish Russian, was drafted (conscripted) into service under authority of the Military Service Act of 1917. He stated on his form, entitled "Particulars of Recruit", that he was from Inverness, Inverness County (Cape Breton), Nova Scotia, that he was single, and that his trade was that of a Clerk. He signed his paper at Aldershot Camp, Nova Scotia, on May 15, 1918. He was then placed in the Canadian Siberian Expeditionary Force (CSEF). The CSEF was authorized on August 12, 1918, and was composed of 4,000 soldiers that were sent to Russia to combat the Bolshevik menace. The soldiers were selected from the headquarters staff, "B" Squadron Royal North West Mounted Police, 85th Battery Canadian Field Artillery, 16th Field Company Canadian Engineers, 6th Signal Company, 259th and 260th Infantry Battalions, 20th Machine Gun Company, No. 1 Company Divisional Train, No. 16 Field Ambulance, No. 11 Stationary Hospital, and No. 9 Ordnance Detachment. The Commander was Major-General J. H. Elmsley. Most of the soldiers were stationed in Vladivostok. They returned home to Canada in the summer of 1919 without engaging in any hostilities.
