This is my great, great uncle, Arnold George KNIGHT. I have just found out on ANZAC Day, 2013 that he died over in VILLERS-BRETONNEUX, France. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission records indicate that he has no known grave and his name is recorded on the Villers-Bretonneux Memorial. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, he boarded HMAT Ulysses (A38) at Port Melbourne on the 27th October, 1915 as part of the 26th Infantry Battalion, AIF. At the time of his death, he was serving with the 12th Infantry Battalion. As such, he was posthumously awarded the 1914-15 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal which are all missing. I would like to know that these missing war medals will stay in the family and any assistance in helping us to recover them would be greatly apprecated.

My Grandfather's First World War & Second World War medals went missing many years ago. My family has not given up hope of finding them. Along with the First World War trio (1914-15 Star, British War Medal & Victory Medal) he was also a recipient of the Croix de la Confédération Européenne des Anciens Combattants (Cross of the European Confederation of Former Combattants). He also received Les Veterans Du Rol Albert 1909-1934. One of these medals has a blue ribbon with yellow stars in the top left hand corner, the medal is in the shape of a 14 pointed star, the middle of the star is red and white. The 2nd one is on a red ribbon with 2 oak leaves on it, I've been told it is a Prince Albert medal given to those who served in Belgium? The next Medal is on a yellow ribbon with a blue stripe down the middle. The medal is round and says Batailles Dela Somme J. Villel- No Vembre MCM. XVI on the reverse RFM. 1990 Combattants De La Somme 1914-1918-1940 J.R. Maclean Scottish Rifles. Six medals in total from the First World War. After so many years missing I really hope that who ever may have these missing war service medals would be kind enough to return them to our family.

Country: Australia
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.
