Alan was keen to see this medal returned to the family for the following reasons:
- 'He was wounded in the same action when my Uncle was KIA 2356 T.H.Kitchen .
- He was one of three brothers,
- They lived very near from where my uncle & Dad grew up in Waterloo and possibly went to the same school Cleveland St in Surrey Hills.'
The returned medal tally is now 580.
The family of Teddy McLean also had his memorial plaque so now all the items have been reunited. (Added 6 Feb 10).
