Frank Boyd - RAAF

The request to find the family of 412101 Flight Sergeant Frank Lawrence Boyd came to me from Air Force Head Quarters. The medals were held by the Gaythorne RSL but we took up the case on their behalf.
Frank was killed in action over the Netherlands and is buried in the Enschede Eastern General Cemetery. A picture of the headstone is below.
Frank's three WWII medals will be returned to his great nephew in the near future.
The returned medal tally is now 1146.


Update 28 May 12 The three medals that will be returned to the Boyd family are the 1939-45 Star, the 1939-45 War Medal and the Air Crew Europe Star.
