Horace Leslie Soppa initially served in the militia as Q66183 in the 1st Labour Company. He later transferred to the 2nd AIF as QX21025 and served in the 2/26th Battalion. As his number indicates, Horace was from Queensland and the electoral rolls show that he remained in Queensland after the war.
Unfortunately, the medal disc has come away from the suspender and where the rest of his group is remains a mystery.
Horace's medal will be returned to his family who are still in Queensland and thank you to Shirley F of Mt Magnet who sent the medal to me in the first place.
The returned medal tally is now 1174.
