I'm trying to find information on a medallion I have, probably from my dad. Wondering if anybody here has any hints.

It's round and seems to be made out of pewter. On one side there's an idolized carving of a woman with a shovel. On the other side, the words...
ORDER OF THE SHOVEL
SILVER
CAPE SCOTT WIVES
WINTEX 61

A Google search gave me this...
https://navalandmilitarymuseum.org/wp-c ... n-1961.pdf

The only reference I can find in that document is: (page 122)

$1:
At the end of the 1960 exercises in Bermuda, Cape Scott personnel struck a medal, "The Order of the Snow Shovel", for presentation to wives in home port who had to cope with record snowfalls while their husbands were serving from mid-January to late March in a far more benevolent clime.


(My cousin was born at CFS Bermuda. :) )

It sounds like "The Order of the Shovel" is a medal that was struck by the soldiers to commemorate something they went through.

Thanks, I'll have to go through that document to see if something's familiar.

This is a pretty cool video if you are into military aviation.

I like this because of the "Alt-Right" part.
