58680 Daniel Francis Ryan was 33 years old when he enlisted in 1917. The unit listed on his medal is 7 Field Ambulance but he was also posted to a Veterinary Hospital for a period of time. Daniel died in 1952.
The search for a descendant of Daniel's was complicate by Daniel's daughter and then grand daughter marrying and I had to work out their married surnames. It was only though death notices and the electoral rolls could I follow each family up until 1980. What I did have was the name of Daniel' great grandson from the electoral rolls but finding him now was a little difficult. I had several options and only trough an educated guess did I find the right person on the first attempt.
This medal was one of several groups sent to me recently by Stuart H.
The medal returned tally is now 2147.
