ACCORDING TO DONOR IRIS ASPESLET AT TIME OF DONATION, THE AIGUILETTE WAS WORN BY HER HUSBAND, A. O. (TONY) ASPESLET, WHEN HE SERVED AS AIDE-DE-CAMP FOR GRANT MACEWAN WHO WAS LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR FROM 1966-1974. THE DONOR SAID HE WORE THE AIGUILETTE DURING EVENTS SUCH AS A BOY SCOUT INSPECTION AND THE OPENING OF THE NIKKA YUKO JAPANESE GARDENS. ACCORDING TO WWW.NIKKAYUKO.COM, "ESTABLISHED DURING CANADA’S CENTENNIAL IN 1967, NIKKA YUKO WAS BUILT TO RECOGNIZE CONTRIBUTIONS MADE BY CITIZENS OF JAPANESE ANCESTRY TO THE MULTI-CULTURAL COMMUNITY OF LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, AND AS A SYMBOL OF INTERNATIONAL FRIENDSHIP. ITS NAME WAS CREATED FROM THE JAPANESE WORDS NI (FROM NIHON MEANING JAPAN), KA FROM KANADA OR CANADA, AND YUKO, WHICH TRANSLATES AS 'FRIENDSHIP' TO MEAN 'JAPAN-CANADA FRIENDSHIP.'" THE EVENT WAS ALSO ATTENDED BY PRINCE AND PRINCESS TAKAMATSU. DONOR WAS UNABLE TO RECALL HOW OR WHY THE AIGUILETTE SURVIVED. AIDES-DE-CAMP ACT AS LIASONS BETWEEN THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR'S OFFICE AND ORGANIZATIONS; PROVIDE ADVICE AND ASSISTANCE TO HOSTS OF OFFICIAL FUNCTIONS ON BEHALF OF THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR; ENSURE THE CORRECT LEVEL OF PROTOCOL IS ADHERED TO AT OFFICIAL FUNCTIONS; AND ATTEND TO THE NEEDS OF THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR. THE POSITION IS SELECTED FROM MEMBERS OF THE REGULAR FORCES, RESERVISTS AND THE ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE. ACCORDING TO "LETHBRIDGE AT WAR," "LIEUTENANT COLONEL ASPESLET FIRST JOINED THE ARMY IN 1941 AS AN INFANTEER. ONE YEAR LATER, AND NOW IN ENGLAND, HE WAS A CORPORAL WITH THE 29TH CANADIAN ARMOURED RECONNAISSANCE REGIMENT. AFTER OFFICER TRAINING AT SANDHURST, LIEUTENANT COLONEL ASPESLET WAS COMMISSIONED AND HE SERVED IN EUROPE UNTIL RETURNING TO CANADA FOR DEMOBILIZATION ON 10 JANUARY 1946. NOT TOO LONG AFTERWARDS HE WAS BACK IN THE ARMY, THIS TIME WITH THE 19TH ALBERTA ARMOURED CAR REGIMENT IN EDMONTON AND LATER THE CALGARY TANKS. UPON ARRIVING IN LETHBRIDGE, LIEUTENANT COLONEL ASPESLET FIRST JOINED THE ENGINEERS UNTIL THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMMAND THE 18TH FIELD ARTILLERY REGIMENT PRESENTED ITSELF. ALL THROUGH HIS RESERVE SERVICE IN ALBERTA, HE WORKED IN THE DAIRY PROCESSING INDUSTRY AS A DAIRY SPECIALIST. LIEUTENANT COLONEL ASPESLET CONTINUED TO COMMAND THE 18TH FIELD ARTILLERY REGIMENT UNTIL JANUARY 1967 WITH MAJOR JACK CLEWES AS HIS SECOND-IN-COMMAND FOR MUCH OF THIS TIME." A.O. ASPESLET PASSED AWAY IN MAY OF 2007. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION.

PLAINS INDIGENOUS. PROBABLE USE AS LEATHER TOOL. *UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON ASKED TWO FORMER MEMBERS OF THE LETHBRIDGE JUNIOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, PHIL EDMUNDSON AND PAUL RUSZNAK, ABOUT THE FIRST NATIONS ARTIFACTS THAT THE GROUP DONATED TO THE GALT MUSEUM IN 1964, 1969, AND 1973. NEITHER RECALLED HOW THE JAYCEES CAME INTO OWNERSHIP OF THE ARTIFACTS, AS THEIR ACQUISITION PREDATED BOTH EDMUNDSON AND RUSZNAK’S MEMBERSHIP IN THE CHAMBER. RESEARCH CONDUCTED INTO LETHBRIDGE’S GURNEY MUSEUM FOUND A CONNECTION BETWEEN ITS PROPRIETOR, WALTER GURNEY, AND THE JAYCEES, WHO ACCORDING TO AN ARTICLE FROM THE APRIL 16, 1946 ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ADVOCATED ON GURNEY’S BEHALF FOR IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MADE TO THE FORMER BOARD OF TRADE BUILDING WHERE THE MUSEUM WAS HOUSED. AN ARTICLE FROM THE JULY 13, 1948 ISSUE OF THE HERALD DESCRIBES SOME OF THE FIRST NATIONS ARTIFACTS ON DISPLAY IN THE MUSEUM: “TOMAHAWKS, ARROW HEADS, PEACE PIPES, BEAD AND LEATHER WORK, CLOTHING AND WOODCRAFT”. UPON THE CLOSURE OF THE MUSEUM AND SALE OF GURNEY’S COLLECTION TO BELMORE SCHULTZ OF THE ALTAMONT MUSEUM IN COUTTS, MENTION WAS MADE IN A HERALD ARTICLE FROM MAY 16, 1961 OF “HISTORICAL INDIAN RELICS THAT BELONG TO THE JUNIOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE HAVE BEEN RETAINED IN THE CITY AND WILL BE AVAILABLE WHEN PROPER DISPLAY FACILITIES ARE AVAILABLE”. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE ARTIFACTS WERE TRANSFERRED TO THE JAYCEES BY GURNEY DURING THE DISSOLUTION OF HIS MUSEUM, BUT NO FURTHER CONFIRMATION WAS FOUND. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE GURNEY MUSEUM AND ITS COLLECTION, SEE RECORD P19890044001.
UPDATE 16 AUGUST 2017: ON 25 JULY 2017, MUSEUM CURATOR AIMEE BENOIT FOUND EVIDENCE TO CONNECT THE INDIGENOUS COLLECTION DONATED BY THE LETHBRIDGE JAYCEES (AKA. JUNIOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE) WITH FORMER LETHBRIDGE RESIDENTS THE LATE FRED BOTSFORD AND HIS LATE DAUGHTER DOROTHY CLARK. NOTES MADE BY AIMEE ON THE DISCOVERY AS WELL AS RELEVANT CLIPPINGS FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD CAN BE FOUND ATTACHED TO THE PERMANENT FILE OF P19641140000.
