Every so often I receive a request from a Police force asking to research some medals they have come across. The circumstances usually involve a theft and sometimes there is some need for some prudence with the details. Last week I received a request from the WA Police about just such a discovery. Based on the name, which was a we known Perth family, I was able to point the police in the direct of the veterans son.
Today I was informed that the family has been contacted and the medals will soon be returned.
The returned medal tally is now 1432.
