Medal Type: WW1 - 1914-1915 Star Medal Trio
Service No: 66
Unit No: 9
I am searching for the First World War medals (1914-15 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal) which was awarded to Lieutenant Norman Leslie WEYNAND. He was born at Allora, Queensland and was the son of Henry and Elizabeth Weynand, of Church Street, West End, South Brisbane. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, Norman boarded HMAT Omrah (A5) at Port Brisbane on the 24th September, 1914. At the time of embarkation, his rank was Corporal. He served on Gallipoli and was later promoted through the ranks. Norman was killed on the 23rd July, 1916 during the battle for Pozieres. The same day as his young cousin's 16th Birthday. Later on the passing of his family, documents and medals were passed onto her. When she was in her mid 90's, her home was broken into and the medals stolen. I shared many Anzac Days with her and she showed these medals to me several times, only wish that digital photography existed then. Would love to have returned any of Norman's medals or know the whereabouts of his brother Sydney's medals too. Before she passed away at 99 years she gave me his photos, letters and documents. I have looked in many places over the years, and I hope for their return.

I am searching for the First World
War Medal (1914-1915 Star) which was awarded to William Robert McGHIE. The First World War Embarkation Roll only lists his name as Robert McGHIE, so this may be the name reflected on the reverse of the 1914-1915 Star. He embarked with the 25th Infantry Battalion from Port Brisbane aboard HMAT Aeneas (A60) on the 29 June, 1915 and served at Gallipoli. Any assistance in helping my family to recover this missing war medal would be greatly appreciated. He survived the Great War and returned to Australia. He later served during the Second World War under the service number of N67710.

Medal Type: WW2 U.K. Combinations - U.K. Four - (Atlantic, Italy)
I am searching for the Second World War medals of my grandfather, Nicolas LENTAKIS who served in the British Merchant Navy during World War 2. He was killed in action aboard the Président Doumer on the 30 October, 1942. This troop transport was sunk by German U-Boat U-604, North east of Madeira whilst in convoy SL-125. Whilst I understand that Second World War medals issued to British servicemen and merchantmen were not inscribed with the recipient details, I am hoping that something exists which relates to the service of my grandfather. At 21.29 hours on 30 October, 1942, the Président Doumer (Master Jean Paul Mantelet) in convoy SL-125 was torpedoed and sunk by U-604 northeast of Madeira in very bad weather. Panic broke out and the lifeboats were cut down and crushed. Many of the survivors were struggling in the sea, while Alaska (Master Berge Mevatne) began to pick up survivors. The master, 173 crew members, 23 gunners and 63 troops were lost. 78 crew members and seven gunners were rescued by Alaska and HMS Cowslip (K 196) (LtCdr F. Granger, RNR), which landed them at Gibraltar.

My father, Victor Harold SCHROEDER, was born on 7 May 1912, and lived his early years in Norwood, South Australia, before moving to Cheltenham, South Australia until his passing in 2006. Sapper Victor Harold SCHROEDER served with '14 Australian Workshops & Parks Squadron' with Australian Imperial Force from 21 June 1941 to 30 June 1947, and Interim Army from 1 July 1947 to 10 June 1948. Enlisted in Australian Regular Army Special Reserve at Hiro Japan on 11 June 1948, and served in Japan for 757 days. According to the World War Two Nominal Roll, he discharged from Australian Military Forces 6 January 1961. Certificate of Discharge states that he was awarded the 1939-1945 War Medal, however he should also have been entitled to the 1939-1945 Australia Service Medal and possibly the 1939-1945 Star, Defence Medal and the 1945-1975 Australia Service Medal. Also, the World War Two Nominal Roll indicates that he had three different service numbers allocated to him during his military service. They are the AIF number SX13331, 49012 and 4648, so there are duplicate listings on the Medals Gone Missing website under all three service numbers. Before my father died in 2006, he said the he gave his medals to 'a collector' who was known to him. My recollection is that the collector lived in Adelaide, South Australia.
