Marie Boland

The length of service of WR2995 Marie Joyce Boland was relatively short. She enlisted on 6 June 1945 and was discharged on 24 April 1946. He employment in the RAN was as a coder.
The the next 65 years from 1946 there is no public record of Marie that I could find. That is until her death notice from Jun 2013 appeared in the Canberra times. This notice gave the names of her four daughters but all my efforts to determine there full names and current locations proved very difficult. As a last resort I contacted the nursing home mentioned in the death notice and asked if a message could be passed to Marie's family. With in a day I had a response from Marie's daughter Anne and the medal has now been posted home.
Thank you to Ernie K who sent me the medal in October 2017. The returned medal tally is now 2302.
