NX 172739 Patrick Bernard Lane served in the militia and later the 2nd AIF. This is shown by his two service numbers NX172739 and N460696. His unit on discharge was 1 Water Transport. From the family we know that some years ago Patrick loaned his medals to a friend but they were never returned. Now the War Medal is going back to the family.
The returned medal tally is now 777 and this medal is from the NSW RSL box.
