Previous thread about YMCA workers and medals


"Secret" is an abbreviation for "Secretary". Six Canadian YMCA secretaries (local organizers within the Association) accompanied the First Canadian Contingent to Salisbury Plain in 1914, continuing their peacetime role of providing pastoral care but in uniform and with the honorary rank of lieutenant.
