McKeown, Wilton and Gibbons

The Internet has proved to be the key enabler for a couple of the last few returns we have made.
The family of 128 PTE Leslie Henry McKeown came across McKeown's name on our lost medals list and contacted me direct.

Then on the same day a WWII group of 5 awarded to NX 45446 Beverly Robert Wilton arrived in the post. It took me a very short period of time to find that a notice had been put on the NSW RSL website looking for these medals.

Bill has demonstrated his superb research skill once again by tracking down the family of 36611 DV Frederick Francis Gibbons.

The number of medals returned by Lost Medals Australia is now 424.
