Ronald Latimer White originally served as NX72941 in the 2nd AIF and saw service in North Africa. He was awarded the Africa Star for his time in this theater. In 1944 he transferred to the RAAF as 440780.
This medal came to me form the Toodyay RSL which a small sub-branch outside of Perth. How Ronald's medal got from NSW to WA is anyone's guess.
Thanks Anne for unraveling this one for me and to Max from the Toodyay RSL.
The returned medal tally is now 1868.
