Ronald Chapman

This is another example of a man who served his country with little fanfare.
61979 Ronald Frederick Noel Chapman was a Leading Aircraftman in the RAAF and later a labouour. He was married to Rita and it appears they lived a quite life in Parramatta. Rita died in 1969 and Ronald in 1997.
Ronald's medals were sent to me by Denise B and I've found a family connection through Ronald's brother Kenneth.
These medals are named in the usual manner for WWII RAAF medals. The impressing is quite heavy compared to the naming on Army medals and the stars are un-nammed.  
The returned medal tally is 1655.
