The WWII War Medal awarded to Leading Aircraftman Victor Raymond Couchman is one of two medals he was awarded for his service in the RAAF. This medal was sent to me by my friend Sandra. I now know that the Australian Service Medal 1939-45 awarded to Couchman is still with the family so the full entitlement is now reunited.
Thank you Sandra, you will be pleased to know that this search took 18 minutes from start to finish (sorry Bill). The returned medal tally is now 1455.


  1. WOW ... how great to unite the set ... got me all teary ... 18 minutes proves just how good you are :)

  2. Hi Glyn,

    Another good get.

    Can I mention that the last three times I clicked on Comments beneath your posts I have been directed to a feral advertisement. You evidently have a free passenger hooked up somewhere, but I don't have a clue how you would remove it. The subject matter of the ads is not really related to medals!

    Best wishes,
