Medals Gone Missing is searching for the descendants of Edgar ANDERSON who served with the 12th Infantry Battalion, Australian Imperial Force. Edgar was born in Campbelltown, Tasmania circa 1892. He enlisted into the AIF very early in the war and was allocated to the 12th Battalion which was a composite, South Australian / Tasmanian unit. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, Edgar ANDERSON boarded HMAT Themistocles (A32) at Port Melbourne on 22 December, 1914 for overseas service. It is possible that he was a first day lander at Gallipoli. Edgar served on the Gallipoli Peninsula until September when he was evacuated due to illness. He later served in France and survived the war. As a result of his war service, Edgar ANDERSON was awarded the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and the Victory Medal.

Sergeant Charles Herbert THOMPSON was a member of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) serving in a Canadian Squadron. Born in Sydney Australia, he sadly was killed in action on 28 August, 1942 over Hanover, Germany. I believe this medal was given to my father as a token of remembrance of his best friend. I wish to have medal returned to the family of Charles Herbert Thompson. Contact 0420 956 472 or the Medals Gone Missing Administrator via this website. The motto of his squadron was: "For freedom". No. 408 Squadron was formed at Lindholme, Yorkshire on 24th June 1941, and was the second of the many Royal Canadian Air Force bomber squadrons which served overseas in the Second World War. The squadron took part in the first 1,000-bomber raid on Germany, flew many missions against naval and industrial targets, and played an active part in Gardening (minelaying) for victory. Beginning operations with Hampdens in 1941, No. 408 was given Halifaxes towards the end of the following year and later (August 1943) Lancaster IIs. In the summer of 1944 it returned to Halifaxes and flew them for the rest of the war. In all, No. 408 flew 4,610 sorties with Hampdens, Lancasters and Halifaxes and gained more than 210 awards, including 160 DFCs and over 30 Distinguished Flying Medals.

Corps/Service: Infantry

Country: Australia

Sale Price: $0

First World War Medals (1914-1915 Star, British War Medal & Victory Medal) with Memorial Plaque (colloquially known as a Death Plaque or "Dead Man's Penny") Widows Ribbon and Memorial Scroll associated with Alfred Henry STOPHER. Born in England during 1893, Alfred Henry STOPHER emigrated to Australia in 1913 to work as a laborer on the Victorian railroads. He enlisted into the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) on the 13th July, 1915 and was sent to camp at Broadmeadows before being moved to Seymour, where he qualified as a Signaller. Allocated the service number 951, he was enrolled into the 29 Infantry Battalion. Whilst in camp Alfred married his sweetheart, Annie Plunkett of Footscray, changing his will and enlistment papers to record her as next of kin. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, Alfred Henry STOPHER boarded the troop transport HMAT Ascanius (A11) on the 10 November, 1915 from Port Melbourne. He arrived in the Middle East on 7th December, 1915. After spending months training in the desert and taking part in canal defence duties, the 29th Battalion embarked for France in mid June of 1916, with STOPHER travelling on the transport Tunisian. After arriving in Marseilles the Battalion entrained to northern France and proceeded to billets at Morbecque before moving to Estaires. After taking part in some minor operations at Bois Grenier in early July, STOPHER and his battalion took part in the major attack at Fromelles, remaining in the area until August before leaving for Houplines and then Strazeele. In October 1916 STOPHER went absent without leave for one day and upon his return was sentenced to ten days field punishment (No. 2) as a result. Following this incident he moved with the battalion to Bailleul and then to Ribemont, before going absent without leave again in December; this time overstaying his leave for just under three days. Given his past indiscretion, and the fact that this time he was on active duty when committing the crime, he was sentenced to 28 days field punishment (No. 1). After serving his punishment, STOPHER went with his battalion to Dernancourt and then Fricourt, participating in attacks near Bapaume in early 1917, where he was killed in action by shellfire on 12th February while laying a communications cable. Due to the heavy snow and the extent of his injuries, the body of Alfred Henry STOPHER was only discovered three days later, whereupon it was buried in a shell hole twenty yards north of Les Bouefs-Gueudecourt Road, south east of Gueudecourt, three miles north of Combles. He was subsequently re-buried at Bancourt Military Cemetery (British) in France, Grave 5 D 14. These medals were offered for sale on the open market, but failed to sell on the 28th July, 2013.

His action was recorded in the Official History by C.E.W.Bean:- "The infantry had proceeded forward and was caught between the intense artillery fire and machine gun fire. They were being picked out ,and getting a lot of casualties. The Machine Gun men came through this fire (as mentioned) and went about silencing all the enemy guns that had been causing horrific casualties. Without the bravery of SHANNON ,and a Corporal GOLDSWORTHY, who also won the Military Medal for the action, Peronne would have ended in a different result".
