I was recently contacted by Les A from the Batemans Bay RSL who had the BWM awarded to 1981 John James Samuel Horrigan. Les was keen to see the medal returned to the family.
I came across a fair bit of information about Horrigan on varies genealogy websites but nothing definitive that led me straight to a living descendent. It took four days to unravel the family tree and draw together all the clues but I was eventually able to locate Horrigan's grand daughter in law and in turn his great grand daughters.
The returned medal tally is now 1010.
