I have three Large Medals and two small Badges from a Hugh Campbell who served in WW1. The first medal is: THE GREAT WAR FOR CIVLISATION 1914-1919. On this Medal is stamped, 29539 SJT. H. Campbell 16-can.Inf..

Next is a medal with cross Swords dated 1914-1915, stamped on the back, 29539 Pte H. Campbell 16/Can:INF:..Last medal which has a figure head with no ribbon is stamped same as the first Medal. The two small Badges have a Crown with Canada stamped under it. Does anyone have some info on this Canadian 16/Inf. from the great War? How about some info on a H. campbell? What is SJT & Pte? Is this his rank? How about 29539, is this his serial number?

Yes they are to the same man. He has been promoted during his service so this why he is private on his 14/15 star and sjt on his war medal and victory medal.

Dan,

Thanks for the information. Do you have anything on the 16th Canadian Infantry?

Yes, Pte is Private & Sjt (or Sgt) Sergeant/Serjeant, his rank, and indeed 29539 is his service number!

A small point, but the ribbon that is on the 1914-15 Star should be on the British War Medal (the silver one without a ribbon at present).

Jim,

Thank you for the info, that's what I thought but was not 100% sure.

Andrew,

I'll make the switch. Thanks.
