12186 Abraham Stanley Charlton served in the RAAF during WWII and was awarded the Australian Service Medal 1939-1945 and the War Medal. These medals were found in a pub near Woolongong in 2005. They were then handed into the NSW Police who forwarded them to the the Directorate of Honours and Awards and then finally to me. Well done to Debra from the Wollongong Station for taking this action.
The medals will now be returned to Charlton's grand son.
The returned medal tally is now 878.
