The WWII War Medal awarded to N480223 Thomas James Ahern was sent to me by Jeff I with the hope that a family member could be located. This is the story from Bill:
The search for the next of kin of Thomas began on the 11 April 2010 when we received his medal, and though the usual twists and turns, over the last 17 Months we can finally call a halt to the search.
Thomas' medal has been returned to his sister Eileen.
It was the help provided by Nicole, a member of the Geraldton Family Historical Society, that finally pointed Bill towards Eileen, that help finalise the search
Thank you Nicole.
The returned medal tally is now 1012.
