Honours and Awards
All Canadians who served overseas received medals. A minority received awards for gallantry in action or outstanding service, either in or behind the front lines. Published lists of recipients of these awards can help build a biographical picture of an individual. As well, the collecting of awards as a hobby can involve the expenditure of large sums of money, depending on the rarity of the award. These published lists help to document the authenticity of awards and the conditions under which they were won.
