Infantry

Country: Australia
I am searching for the First World War Medals for my great uncle, Corporal Charles Michael TAYLOR who served with the 32nd Infantry Battalion. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, he boarded HMAT Geelong (A2) on the 18th November, 1915 from Port Adelaide. The missing war medals have never been located by anybody in my family. Whilst married, he & his wife never had any children. We have photos of him from World War 1 & of the 32nd Battalion, but nothing further, if anyone has any information about him or his medals,it would wonderful to hear from you.

Medal Type: WW2 U.K. Combinations - U.K. Four - (Atlantic, Italy)


Corps/Service:
Merchant Navy

Country:
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.

Country: Australia
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.

Country: Australia
Seeking the missing First World War Medal (British War Medal) of my grandfather, George Christopher HUTCHINSON who was from Bondi in New South Wales. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, George Christopher HUTCHINSON boarded the S.S. Gaika at Port Sydney on the 30th July, 1918 - having enlisted only the month before in June 1918. Subsequently, the fighting ceased as a result of the armistice and he did not see active service, resulting in his only entitlement being the British War Medal. The missing British War Medal is last known to have been in the Toukley area of NSW Australia in the early 2000s, in the possession of his late son Sydney. Very important to his family as a way of remembering Pop.

Country: Australia
Am looking for my husbands great great uncle's First World War medals which are missing. His name was Peter LEITCH and he served with the 25th Infantry Battalion, AIF. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, Peter LEITCH boarded HMAT Commonwealth (A73) on the 28 March, 1916 at port Brisbane. As a result, Peter LEITCH was only entitled to the British War Medal and the Victory Medal which is known as the World War 1 pair. He was outside the period of eligibility for the 1914-1915 Star. His mother told me that someone once rang her to drop them off to her, but never showed. Would love for these missing medals to be returned as my husband is now in the army himself.
