This is another story that started with a medal being handed in to the Queensland Police Service and my mate Tim seeking a little bit of help.
Tim had received an Australian Defence Medal but was stuck locating the soldier. All Tim had was the initial and the surname. It took a little bit of back tracking through open records but I was able to give Tim the first and second name. Using this information Tim found a burglary report from 2018 when the medal was stolen. He now has been in contact with the owner and the medal is on the way back home.
The returned medal tally is now 2585.
