I received the Victory Medal awarded to 1893 Garnet Wolsley Howland from Barbara H of Lithgow. After she came across the medal, Barbara visited the Australian War Memorial and my details were passed to her. Once I had Garnet's service particulars from Barbara, it took 15 minutes to find one of Garnet's sons, Jack. Garnett served with 35th Battalion, AIF. Jack Noel Howland served during WWII and spent four years a POW.
The returned medal tally is now 1294.
