Yet another success from Bill:
This request came from a constable at Fawkner (Vic) police station who had been handed an Australian Service Medal 1939-45. From my research I believe our man served initially in the Militia then transferred to the RAAF. During his time with the RAAF he served in PNG.
And that is where the printable story ends. The family circumstances of this veteran are complicated and difficult. Out of respect for the family member that Bill located we are keeping this short and acknowledging the research skills of our friends of the Australian Surname Group. There are also some Police matters pending.
The returned medal tally is now 1595.
