2136 Frank Hedley Gordon Coomber was an 18 year old grocer from Perth when he enlisted in 1915. He was wounded in action in France in 1916. His service record has some really interesting entries, including a letter from Coomber dated 1963 about an appointment to the Corps of Commissionaires. At some point he moved to Melbourne. His medal came to me from Perth and will be returned to family in Sydney. The returned medal tally is now 595.
