Norman Cranston

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.

For those who take an interest in naming styles note the difference between RAN and Army naming.


  1. Congratulations Glyn and thank you to Lynne for sending them to you ... ACA have done a stirling job :)

  2. I'd like to thank you Glyn for contacting me and organizing the returning of my Dads' medals to us. Every Anzac Day I've wanted the grandchildren of Dads to wear his medals never knowing where they were. Thank you also to Lynn S for returning them and to my cousin Rodney and Debbie who helped Glyn find me. Again my heartfelt thanks, Leigh Monteath.
