A First War Pair to the Canadian Pioneer Battalion

WWI Canadian Pair to the Canadian Pioneer Battalion - British War Medal (102335 PTE. D.M. ROSS. CAN. PNR. BN.); and Victory Medal (102335 PTE. D.M. ROSS. CAN. PNR. BN.). Naming is officially impressed. Un-mounted, dark patina and edge nicks on the BWM, spotting on the VM, light contact, original ribbons, near extremely fine.Footnote: David M. Ross was born on January 23, 1882 in Toronto, Ontario. He signed his Attestation Paper as a Private, on September 3, 1915 in Victoria, British Columbia, at the age of 33, originally naming his wife as his next-of-kin, but since she died shortly after he enlisted, on September 17th, it was changed to his mother, Mrs. Ross Peel of Toronto, stating that he had previous military service with the 50th Regiment (Gordon Highlanders of Canada), that he was married and that his trade was that of Stone Cutter. He served in the European theatre with the Canadian Pioneer Battalion. Canada's eight Pioneer Battalions performed the same kind of duties as the engineers. Often working with them, the Pioneers helped maintain open lines of communication. All the Pioneer Battalions, except the 1st Pioneer Battalion, were absorbed into the Canadian Engineers upon reorganization of that corps in 1917.
