Boer War "Discovery of the Month" (Sept 2001)
The Bloodied and Battered Bayonet
of
Trooper Otto Moody, 2 CMR, 1902
We are proud to have repatriated to Canada, and preserved intact, what is probably the finest collection of memorabilia belonging to a Canadian Boer War soldier in Canada, just as it was on the verge of being sold off, piece meal, to collectors around the world. This was also due to the generosity of public minded Americans.
