Every so often there are a set of circumstances that just means that the full story can't be told.
The call for assistance came from a fellow researcher on the British Medals Forum who had taken responsibility for several sets of medals. Three of the medals were awarded to two Vietnam War veterans who I tracked down and spoke to today.
We think we now know why their original medals where missing and there is no suspicious circumstances. One reason was that there was an official double issue. While this is rare it is not unheard of.
Anyway, there are no details or pictures to post, just an update to returned medal tally which is now 2151.
