It has been well noted that while organizing a home, my most memorable finds are military memorabilia. These priceless items all have a story to tell. My most memorable find was a Memorial Cross hidden amongst tiny boxes in the bottom of a dresser drawer. As I carefully opened this small box and removed the insert, there, lay a Military Medal. Not knowing exactly it’s significance, with permission, I snapped a picture of it to show my husband after I arrived home. Military runs deep in my family and families passed. I, myself served in the reserve forces for 5 years. The first unit I proudly served in was The Lanark & Renfrew Scottish Regiment ( Infantry) and the second The 26th Field Regiment (Artillary). My 5x great grandfather fought in The Revolutionary War and was the first family to settle in Wine Harbour, Nova Scotia. My great grandfather served in the Boer War and 1st World War. My grandfather served in the 1st World War & 2nd World War. Next to follow is my father who served in The Korean War. My husband served in The Canadian Armed Forces for 22 years and deployed to many areas of the world. All of my uncles followed suit as well as my brother. So, as you can see, anything pertaining to the military holds a special place in my heart. When I took out my phone to show my husband my exciting find, I asked him about the Memorial Cross and how one obtained it. He carefully stared at the picture I had taken and his eyes filled with tears. I didn’t quite understand the significance or meaning of this medal but I was going to find out anything and everything I needed to know so I could tell it’s story. This medals story was not to lie in the bottom of a drawer but to be told to the owner of it, and I did just that. The Memorial Cross is given to a mother who has lost a son or daughter in battle, in this case, son. Tears were shed while I proceeded to tell it’s story. At that moment, nothing else mattered. I knew this was my niche while working as a Professional Organizer, and to this day, it still is my passion to tell an untold story that may have gone untold for so long.
