Another international return

Since Apr 06 I have been researching the 14/15 Star awarded to 14420 PTE Ralph Dudgeon, Coldstream Guards. I received some bits of information from the British Medal Forum and the Great War Forum. Unfortunately, no clues of any substance was generated. The only link to Dudgeon's later life is an entry on the NSW BDM that he died in Mona Vale in 1969. While his records shows that he had a wife named Annie we just couldn't find anything else.
The power of the Internet proved itself yet again toady when I received an email from Dudgeon's great niece who lives in England.
The returned medal tally is now 669.

PS. John S, we have almost returned all the medals you sent me four years ago.
