Another Fromelles story

In recent months I have been contacted by Colin Stalgis who is a relative of 2898 CPL Gregory Francis Stalgis. Gregory was another of the AIF soldiers killed at Fromelles on 20 July 1916 and buried in a mass grave. Just like David Irvin, Gregory's remains have been identified and he is now buried in a marked grave. Colin attended the reburial and has provided me with photos of the head stone, meeting with the Duchess of Cornwall and of Gregory taken a year before he was killed in action.
Colin is searching for Gregory's WWI medals and I've added the details to my research notes. Maybe this post with help uncover them.
