  • Corps: Search by Corps or Service only: i.e. Artillery, Mounted (this includes Cavalry & Lighthorse) Merchant Navy, Air Force, Armoured etc.
  • Unit Number: Enter the unit number ONLY - no other details. i.e. to find all items under the 10th Lighthorse Regiment - simply type in the number 10. If searching for a composite unit such as the 55/53rd Militia Battalion (Australian Military Forces) - simply type in 55/53. NOTE: a number only will yield results for ALL countries.

3. I am searching for my Grandfathers missing WW1 medals. They were sold at either Gawler or Elizabeth Cash Converters approximately 10 to 15 years ago without my knowledge. There is a chance they have been separated but he was awarded the 3 medals. I would love to have these missing war service medals returned to the family and any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I hope that the collector who purchased them would consider selling them back to me, I am prepared to pay an amount above their value which can be negotiated.

I am searching for my grandfathers medals from the second world war. The story goes that my uncle took the medals to someone to have the ribbons redone, before these medals could be returned he passed away without telling anyone whom had them for the repair. My uncle was based in Blayney so it is my understanding that they are around that area. I have the original miniatures it is only that large ones missing. His history in the force is hard to pin down as he bounce around several company's as follows 2 Anti tank 6 anti tank 2/14 Field regiment 52 Australian Transport Platoon which is the unit listed on the World War Two Nominal Roll (so his unit upon discharge from the AIF) The name and Service number on the medals are; W.R. PARSONS NX150319 Any information would be greatly appreciated in finding theses medals. If someone has purchased these since I am happy to compensate with an added reward.

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.

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.
