M.M + WW1 Trio

Service No: 2768

Unit No: 19 Battalion

Corps/Service: Infantry

Country: Australia
I am searching for the missing war service medals of William John JONES who served with the 19th Infantry Battalion, AIF during the Great War. The last known location of these missing war medals was at a pawn store in Russell Street, Toowoomba in 1947. William would often pawn his medals to buy food for his family, however sadly he passed away before picking them up on the last occasion. William John JONES was also awarded a gold fob with "Milton District War Service Medal" engraved on the reverse (Milton/Ulladulla NSW). I fully understand that a medal set such as this is highly collectible. I also realise that if somebody has these medals in their collection, that they may not wish to part with them. But my wife's family would be extremely grateful, just to learn that they are safe and valued. If you are the person who currently has custody of the medals and would consider selling them back to us, then we would very much appreciate it. Alternatively, if ever you decide to sell them in the future, we would be most grateful if our family was given first offer. I am an ex-serviceman myself and I dearly value the service of my fellow veterans and the medals which represent them.

1939-1945 Australia Service Medal

Service No: NX71849

Unit No: 2/30th Infantry Battalion

Corps/Service: Infantry

Country: Australia
Medals Gone Missing is attempting to located the next of kin of Lance Corporal Hilton Robert BLANCH who served during the Second World War with the 2/30th Infantry Battalion. Tragically, Hilton was captured by the Japanese when Singapore fell on 15th February 1942. He endured over 3 years of captivity and slaved on the Thai Burma Railway. Fortunately Hilton Robert BLANCH survived this ordeal and was repatriated to Australia. But sadly Hilton passed away in during August 1953 (possibly as a result of complications related to his war service?) Hilton's war medals have been located. This broken set consists of the 1939 Star, Pacific Star and 1939-1945 War Medal. His 1939-1945 Australia Service Medal is not amongst the set and it is hope it can be located so that the full compliment of medals can be returned to his family, once located.

Australian Four (Pacific)

Service No: 15165

Unit No: HMAS Canberra & HMAS Australia

Corps/Service: Navy

Country: Australia
My family is searching for the missing Second World War medals of my great grandfather, Henry Macdonald PITTAWAY. Henry served in the Royal Australian Navy during World War 2 on board the ships HMAS Canberra and HMAS Australia. Tragically his medals were accidentally discarded when a cabinet of a chest of drawers was placed out for street collection and we never got the medals back, once it was realised that the medals were missing. We are desperate to have these missing war service medals returned and any assistance would be greatly appreciated. As you can imagine, we are quite distraught that they were discarded in such a manner and hope that they are now in the hands of a conscientious collector who may be prepared to help us.

Looking for war medals, Record of Service book and photographs pertaining to Stanley Herbert SEIVER. Lost many years ago. Apparently sold on Ebay in 2015. Whilst this post states 'Pacific Star', all six medals awarded to Stanley Herbert SEIVER have gone missing. The full set consists of:- 1939-1945 Star, Africa Star, Pacific Star, Defence Medal, 1939-1945 War Medal and 1939-1945 Australia Service Medal. The World War Two Nominal Roll states that he was discharged as a member of the 2/28th Infantry Battalion AIF.

Death Plaque a.k.a Memorial Plaque

Service No: 505

Unit No: 7

Corps/Service: Infantry

Country: Australia
I am searching for the missing First World War Memorial Plaque (colloquially but incorrectly known as a 'Death Plaque') which was commissioned in memory of Trafford Cyril PETTIGREW. Trafford Cyril PETTIGREW is my great-uncle and his service number was 505. He served with the 7th Battalion and tragically was killed in action on 25/04/1915, North Beach, Anzac Cove. The plaque was taken by deception from my father, Joseph Cyril Pettigrew, in Sydney around 2000-2003, before he died. The person involved purported to represent some sort of museum and took the plaque on loan for a display. My father, an ex-serviceman VX21279, was in his eighties. Also missing, although I believe legitimately to have been lost, are Traff’s Trio consisting of the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal. In 2018 the Department of Defence Honours and Awards section were gracious enough to allow me to claim Traff’s Commemorative Medallion as his nearest surviving next of kin. To me, the plaque represents not only Trafford Cyril’s bravery and sacrifice, but also the sons, uncles and cousins that were never to be. Thanking you for your time and consideration, Respectfully yours, Lindsay Trafford Pettigrew.

Death Plaque a.k.a Memorial Plaque

Service No: 3447

Unit No: 55

Corps/Service: Infantry

Country: Australia
I am in possession of the Memorial Plaque commemorating an Australian soldier named Ernest Albert McCORMACK. The Memorial Plaque was given to me by a tree arborist in Yass NSW. It appears to have been in their family's possession for over 50 years and he informed me that he can remember player with it as a child. The Memorial Plaque was given to him by his father. It may have come into his possession from a box of sundries at an auction but this is not confirmed. I have contacted the Condobolin library and they sent me some information in relation to Ernest McCORMACK and his wife. They were married just prior to his embarkation for France. Her maiden name was either Florence Glisson or Hucker and she operated the Court House Hotel in Condobolin. His parents were William and Bridget McCormack possibly from/buried in Brookside Victoria. There also must be a headstone in Rookwood cemetery Section 6 row 14. I have come to a stand still on finding any relatives that it should be returned to. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
