Defence Long Service Medal

This Defence Long Service Medal came to Bill from via John Morris of the Longbeach RSL. A search of the RSL records did not reveal any member with the same name that is on the medal. John then turned to Bill for help. Once Bill received the medal and provided me the name it took less than a minute to locate the contact details of the serviceman it was awarded to.
We now know that the medal was last seen pinned to a service dress jacket which was stolen at a function in Melbourne in 2005. So after eight years the medal will be sent home making the returned medal tally 1287.

  1. Just goes to show that crime does not pay as this medal knew who it belonged to!
