Ron Towe
Great work by Bill. The stories Glyn and I tell often fall into various categories. One is the slow but steady search, where we tick the boxes as we go. The others, well I am not sure how I would describe the return of the war medals of Ronald James Towe, b...

Bill Lloyd
While the story behind this medal is relatively simple it is the coincidences that have occurred to get it back to the family which are interesting. The War Medal awarded to VX118640 Ernest William (Bill) Lloyd was another of those sent to me bu Ted Ayres f...

Jack Iredale
The WWII War Medal awarded to 427886 Jack Keith Iredale has had a pretty tough life. The medal has come away from the suspender and there are two big nicks in the rim just past the name. This is another medal sent to me by Ted Ayres and it has taken since A...

It often mystifies me how medals end up where there do. Especially when they originate from the other side of the world and there is no obvious explication as to how they got to Australia. The BWM awarded to 329149 Sapper Percival James Chandos Mellor was s...

I've mentioned my friend Catherine Hindson in several posts and this is another occasion where our paths come together again. Catherine contacted me recently about some medals a friend of hers had. One of the medals, a BWM, was awarded to 3128 Edgar Wade Wi...

Ernest Davies - our 2000th return
The search was a reasonably complicated one which pivoted on one simple constant fact that I could follow through the both UK and Australian records. 6452 Ernest James Davies was a 33 year old single draper when he enlisted in 21st Battalion, AIF in 1916. E...

I'm using a leave period to spend some time revisiting several searches which have proved difficult in the past. A fresh look and a calculated guess has resolved this case. I received the 1914/15 Star awarded to 929 George Patrick Walton Petroni from Major ...

Ronald Reoch
In many cases there is not a lot to tell about the solider, the medal or the search. This is one such case. 3837 Roland Reoch was a solider in 15th Battalion AIF. It was a reasonably easy to trace his family through the electoral rolls until 1980. It then t...

It has been a few years since either Bill or I have received a old tin full of bits and bobs including medals. This particular collection came to me from Alice and Avon H who found it in a property they purchased. They were told that the tin had originally ...
