Bill and I are having a run on biscuit tins at the moment.
This tin was sent to me from Townsville. The tin was discovered in an old out building on the property which the current residents have owned for 22 years. They had only recently discovered the tin before sending it to me last October.
The medals were awarded to QX36418 Joseph (Joe) John Lamond. The group consists of the 1939-45 Star, the Pacific Star, the Australian Service Medal 1939-45 and the War Medal. These medals are an official duplicate set that have been reissued by the Department of Defence. The 'D' that indicates they are duplicate can easily be seen in the photos. This link is to an explanation about duplicate medals.
Thank you to Julie F who sent the biscuit tin to me. The returned medal tally is now 1125.
