The 9th (Voltigeurs of Quebec) Regiment was based variously at Calgary and Cleichen during the North West Canada operations of 1885, the recipient being a member of No. 2 Company. Interestingly, two other Chamberlands, presumably brothers, served in the same Company at this time. There was a James Chamberland who served and received a no clasp 1885 rebellion medal and I wonder if it is the same man.
