I thought that with a name like QX13604 William James Lloyd Baltzarsen this chap would be esay to find but it proved quite difficult. This is what Bill wrote to me:
"One of the problems with the search has been the fact that William, was actually christened Wilhelm after his father, and that after WW2, he changed his name from BALTZARSEN to BALTERSEN."
This WWII group of five will be returned to Baltzarsen's niece.
The returned medal tally is now 782 and these are from the NSW box.

Update on 8 May 11 - photos added.
These medals are in mint condition. They have come to me in the original packaging as addressed following the war. It is very uncommon to see a set of medals in this condition. Also the stars have been engraved which is also uncommon for Army medals.
