1st of the NSW medals returned

One of the medals in the NSW box is the SVN medal awarded to 2786975 PTE John Redman. I've managed to locate him and will return the medal shortly. Mr Redman tells me that he last saw this medal when he attended the Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home Parade in Sydney in 1987.
After having a great celebration he returned to where he was staying only to discover the next morning that his medals were missing.
The returned medal tally is now 701.
