When NX60383 Frederick James Saunderson, passed away in April 1982, his medals were passed by Fred’s wife Regina to their son. That was the last the family saw of the medals till just recently when we contacted Fred’s daughter. To say the least she is overjoyed that the medals have been found.
Following the Fred’s son’s death in Queensland in 2000, the family have been searching for the medals. Always with no result.
We were recently contacted by Steve Eaton of the Queensland RSL to whom the medals have been handed. We have a long relationship with the Queensland RSL so it was great to be able to put our research skills to the test to help them out and track down Frederick’s family.
The returned medal tally is now 1504.
