23516 Norman Charles Cranston served in the RAN for a total of 12 years including 6 years of war service. He is currently living in Rockhampton, however, I'll very soon be sending the medals to his daughter. Thanks to Lynn S who sent me the medals after seeing the ACA story. Thanks also to Rodney and Debbie who assisted me locating Norman's immediate family.
The returned medal tally is now 1275.
