  7. Possible First World War era Police Insignia

    Here is another photo for scale:
  8. Not sure if this a civil or military Canadian police cap badge. It looks consistent with CEF insignia but I havent seen one quite like this on the Canadian Provost Corps museum website or anywhere else for that matter. There is no maker's mark and no lugs on the back so it may have been attached to a belt or a bag, etc.

  11. 1920's era Police Athletics Medal

    Matt: I performed some research on Ed E. Guthrie. Here you go: Presbyterian. Spent 2 1/2 years in the CEF. 25 years old when he joined TPF on Oct. 17, 1921. He was 5 ft. and 10 1/4 inches tall. Position : CLERK. Spent 16 years and 2 months as a clerk (civilian service). On January 1, 1938 he was made an Acting Detective. His badge number at the time was #125. On May 27, 1950, he was promoted to Detective Sergeant. Looks like because of his accomplishments as a clerk, he bypassed the standard rank procedure. Hope this helps. Steve

    Ha - that's an embarrassing oversight! Thanks so much Steve, and nice making your acquaintance. Cheers, Matt
  13. 1920's era Police Athletics Medal

    Hi Matt. Steve Green here. I am the "unofficial" Toronto Police Historian. The medal has nothing to do with the CIA (haha) or the Amateur Athletic Association. Most likely presented to him for his expertise in finger printing and facial recognition. Here is the answer you are looking for below. If you require any information on DS Guthrie, you can email me at: walkthebeat@sympatico.ca.
  14. Hi everyone, I am the proud owner of Toronto Police Det-Sgt Edward E. Guthrie's First World War medals, along with a couple of athletic medals. The silver one pictured is from a Grand Trunk Railway athletics championship in 1914, from Guthrie's time as a railway clerk prior to his police career. He joined the TPF in 1921 following the war, as a clerk in the Detective Department, where his father worked. He eventually became a detective himself and was a pioneer in Fingerprint forensics - I even found a newspaper article from the 30's where a judge dismissed fingerprint evidence as something out of a "detective magazine" and found the accused Not Guilty. Anyhow I'm struggling to find what event the medal marked with "I-A-C (or C-A-I, of A-I-C, etc etc) POLICE" on the obverse and "Robbins Co. Attleboro" on the rear is from. I imagine Guthrie was active in the Toronto Police Force Amateur Athletic Association, as his father was and he had competed in athletics during his previous railway career. I believe, due to the fact Robbin's Co. is in Massachusetts, USA, that it was an international event and the letters stand for something like International Police Athletics Championship. Can anyone tell which event specifically it would be from? And would anyone know what (if any) would the correct ribbon for it be? Cheers, Matt PS a little more on E.E. Guthrie
