History Of Use
Used by James Ernest Kirby (1865-1965), resident of Smithers from 1918 to 1965. Kirby served as local Mining Recorder. "P.C.M.R" stands for Pacific Coast Militia Rangers. Formed on March 3, 1942, the Pacific Coast Militia Rangers were volunteers who patrolled, performed military surveillance, and provided local defence of the coastline of British Columbia and in Yukon against the wartime threat of a possible Japanese invasion. At their height, the PCMR consisted of 15,000 volunteers in 138 companies. The Pacific Coast Militia Rangers were disbanded on September 30, 1945, after Japan's surrender in the Second World War.
