The Military Medal
[Thin Blue Line]

First World War

The Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) was awarded only to non-commissioned officers and other ranks "For Distinguished Conduct in the Field" and ranked only second in precedence to the VC as a gallantry award. One thousand and eighty-four soldiers serving in the Canadian army won the coveted silver medal with its crimson and blue ribbon. Thirty-six of the men won it twice (earning a bar on their ribbon) and one soldier won it a remarkable three times. Eight of the overall total were MacKay or MacKie clansfolk. They were:
