James William Henry Hart

564 DVR JWH Hart's medals are impressed with the name of the last unit he served with: the13thMachine Gun Company. Prior to that he was posted to the 36th, 42nd and 52nd battalions. He was wounded in action once when he received a guns shot wound to his left side.
Originally from Brewarrina, NSW, James was from a large family although he didn't marry. His brother Thomas was his next of kin. Thomas had a son also called James William Henry Hart which confused the research a bit. It is through Thomas' family that I've found a relative to receive James' Victory Medal.
Thanks to Vincent M for sending the medal to me.
The returned medal tally is now 1754.
