James Brown

VX29288 James Alexander Brown served in the 1st Division Provost Company. The search for him was rather involved and is best explained by having a look at the research notes Yuku. Once again Bill and the Yuku team put this one together.
The medals are in as issued condition and have never been mounted for waring. The came to me via the Directorate of Honours and Awards having first been handed in to the Victorian Police by a recycling company.
These medals will be returned to James' nephew.
The returned medal tally is now 657.

  1. Glyn,
    Great work on the research and thanks for the update about having found a relative to return these medals to, I'm sure that the medals are priceless for them.
