Penman family medals

Recently I received a box in the mail with no return address that contained 8 medals all awarded to members of the Penman family. The medals were named to the following:
1914-15 Star to S-7324 PTE A. PENMAN. R. HIGHRS
Victory Medal to 17971 PTE W. PENMAN. CAMERONS
1914-15 Star 32960 PTE A. PENMAN R.A.M.C.
39-45 ASM W243016 A. PENMAN
War Medal W243016 A. PENMAN
WWII pair to WX36331 PTE David Douglas Penman who was KIA aged 19 in 1943.
My initial research showed that the recipients were William, Archibald and Alexander Penman. David Penman was Alexander's son. Sandra, from WA, did some wonderful research for me and put me in touch with a member of the family and I'll be sending the medals back to WA in the near future. This brings the medals returned total to 455.
