A Central Alberta Legion is looking for the owner of five Canadian medals awarded for service in the Second World War.
The medals were found in a sea container rented in Calgary earlier this summer.
A member of the Caroline Royal Canadian Legion Branch 177 brought the medals into the Legion about week ago after a friend asked him to find the owner.
Darlene Houlton, secretary of the Caroline Legion, said the medals are locked in a display case in the Legion.
She said the Legion has tried to contact the owner but they have come up empty.
An inscription on two France and Germany Star medals read (S) Sgt. Gilson J.A. Service No. K-22031.
The other three medals are the 1939 and 1945 Canada Volunteer Service Medal (and clasp); a George VI Medal (1939-1945) and the George VI Efficient Service Medal.
“We would love to get these back to the person or the family,” said Houlton.
“We put it on the Legion’s Facebook page. We are just hoping to get them back to the right person or a relative.”
Houlton said they are likely replicas but she would still like to put the medals in the hands of the owner or relatives.
For more information, call Houlton at 403-722-4091.
