I do not have any medals, however, these are extract from newspapers and other sources. These refer to Canadian with Russian Awards.Source: Toronto Evening Telegram newspaper, April 19th, 1918:HONOR FOR BLIND HERO
Word has just been received at the University* that Pte. Harry Turner,
who went overseas with the 1st University Company, PPCLI, was awarded the Russian Cross of St. George for "distinguished acts of bravery on the battlefield." He came to University College with class '09, but was living in Winnipeg at the time of his enlistment. While serving in France he was wounded and lost his sight on June 2nd, 1916. After being in St. Dunstan's Hospital for a time he returned to Canada last May, and in November was elected by the soldiers in France as a member of the Saskatchewan legislature. The same moth he was married to Miss Alice Moyer, formerly of Galt, but then living in Saskatoon, where they are now making their home.
