WX14263 Wilfred 'Bill' Newman Andrews was a teacher with the WA Education Department. He only served for a short period of time before discharge in October 1942. Following the war he had trouble returning to teaching but continued to work for the WA public service.
I hit a lot of brick walls with this search so Anne had a fresh look and located Bill's cousin. Thanks to the RSL who sent me the medal in March 2015.
The returned medal tally is now 1867.
