Four more medals are about to be returned

It has been a quite month for Lost Medals Australia however, in the last few days we have located four families and I'll be sending their medals to them in the near future.
The first medal is a Royal Navy Reserve Long Service and Good Conduct Medal awarded to B1940 AB Ernest Victor Greenhalgh, RNVR. Greenhalgh's grand daughter contacted me having come across his entry on the main website.

The second medal is a WWI Victory Medal awarded to 2729 Roy Condon Bird who served with 14th LHR and the Camel Corps. I would like to thank Luke Keioskie of the The Coffs Coast Advocate who took a letter to the editor that I wrote and turned it into a story. As a result Bird's grandson contacted me.

The third medal is British War Medal awarded to 5763 PTE Leo Campbell Dempsey, 14Bn, AIF. Bill did a great job locating Leo's nephew also named Leo.

The final medal in this round is another British War Medal, this on the 3099 PTE George Grace, 20 Bn, AIF. Once again Bill joined all the dots on this on to locate the family.
