A.G.RYDER

A.G.RYDER

Medal Type: WW1 - World War 1 Pair

Service No: 21855
Unit No: 5

Corps/Service:
Engineers

Country: Australia
Gordon Griffin RYDER is a man who served Australia during the Second World War (and for many years after!). He was following in his father's footsteps by putting his country before himself. He initially joined the AIF however, he discharged from the army and then joined the Royal Australian Navy where he served for 38 years. The sad part of this story is that his father's military and war service medals are missing. His father, Arthur Griffin RYDER served with the British Army for a period of 19 years with the Royal Engineers. After his military service had ceased, Arthur emmigrated to Australia and joined the First AIF during 1917 at the age of 43 years. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, Sapper Arthur Griffin RYDER boarded HMAT Runic at Port Sydney on the 22nd March, 1918 as a reinforcement for the Field Company Engineers. He ended up serving with the 5th Division Engineers and as a result of his service, earned the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. These medals were last seen in South Hurstville, New South Wales during the early 1970's. Unbeknown to Gordon, his step brother sold the family home using power of attorney when his mother was placed in a nursing home. It is believed that a dealer has purchased the contents of the house and his father's war service medals have become lost to Gordon. It is possible that these medals are mounted with two British Army Good Conduct Medals and a British Army Long Service Medal from Arthur's Military Service in the Royal Engineers. It is sincerely asked that whoever has these service medals in their collection may see fit to return these missing medals to Gordon. This listing has been duplicated under Arthur's British Service number, which was 26465. Please refer to Arthur's story in the Medals Gone Missing 'Articles of Interest'. The story was composed by Gordon Griffin RYDER, the son of Arthur. It is possible (though unknown) if any of the medals are stamped with the surname spelt 'RIDER' instead of RYDER.

G'day, My Grandfather's medals have not been seen for 40 to 50 years. The missing First World War medals consist of the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, Robert FRASER left Australia aboard HMAT Anchises (A68) on the 24th of January, 1917 and so he was not entitled to the 1914-1915 Star. Any assistance in helping my family to recover these missing war medals from the Great War would be very much appreciated.

I am searching for the missing First World War medals of my grandfather, David Lee CHAMBERS. The missing medals consist of the 1914-1915 Star, the British War Medal and the Victory Meda. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, David boarded HMAT Wiltshire (A18) on the 19th October, 1914 at Port Melbourne. At this time, he was on strength with the 4th Light Horse Regiment, AIF (Australian Imperial Force). Our Grandfather's Great War medals have not been seen for some time and the family would love to have them back. Our Grandfather was such a special part of our lives and kept his medals with pride. Would love to buy them back as they have so much personal meaning. Any assistance in helping to recover these missing pieces of our family history would be very much appreciated.

Medal Type: WW1 - Death Plaque a.k.a Memorial Plaque

Service No: 1079
Unit No: 4

Corps/Service:
Mounted/ Lighthorse/ Cavalry

Country: Australia
I am searching for the missing First World War Memorial Plaque which was struck to commemorate the life of my great uncle, David Edward BOUND. The missing award is the large bronze memorial plaque, also colloquially known as the "Dead Man's Penny". These were commissioned for all Commonwealth troops who paid the supreme sacrifice during the Great War. I have the 1914-1915 Star & the British War Medal, however the Victory Medal is also missing, resulting in a broken medal set. Dave Bound was my Grandmothers brother. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, he boarded HMAT Euripides (A14) on the 20th October, 1914 at Port Sydney. At this time, he was on strength with the 4th Infantry Battalion, AIF (Australian Imperial Force). He also served in the Imperial Camel Corps. Sadly he lost his life in account of the war and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission records (G.W.G.C) indicate that lies buried in the Gaza War Cemetery. He was the son of William and Rose Bound, of Sheffield, Tasmania. Born at Latrobe, Tasmania. His Victory Medal is also missing and I have placed this in a seperate listing. Any assistance in helping my family to recover these missing pieces of our history would be very much appreciated.

I am searching for the missing First World War Medal which was awarded to my great uncle, David Edward BOUND. The missing award is the Victory Medal which was issued to many Commonwealth troops during the Great War. I have the 1914-1915 Star & the British War Medal, however the Victory Medal is missing, resulting in a broken medal set. Dave Bound was my Grandmothers brother. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, he boarded HMAT Euripides (A14) on the 20th October, 1914 at Port Sydney.

Medal Type: WW1 - 1914-1915 Star Medal Trio

Service No: 1495
Unit No: 8

Corps/Service:
Mounted/ Lighthorse/ Cavalry

Country: Australia
My family is searching for the missing First World War Medals of my grandfather, Hector Norman COLE. The war medals consist of the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and the Victory Medal. My grandfather joined the AIF and was assigned to the 8th Light Horse Regiment. He was initially allocated the service number 1495, but according to the First World War Embarkation Roll, he re-enlisted and actually left Australia on two more occasions with two more different service numbers. The second embarkation was aboard the SS Mahai on the 16th January, 1918 with the service number of 95 and his third deployment took place on the 14th of September, 1918 under the service number of 3120. On both of these latter deployments, he was serving with the Australian Remount Section which explains his multiple departures from Australia. Whilst his 1914-1915 Star is more than likely under his original number of 1495, his British War Medal and Victory Medal could be under either of his latter service numbers. The missing medals left our family under very unfortunate circumstances which have upset our family. We would be most grateful if they could be returned to us. Otherwise, we would be particularly happy just to know that they are safe and are being cared for. I am Susan, Hector's eldest surviving grandchild and I would appreciate it if the current owner of the medals would contact me via the Medals Gone Missing website.

Corps/Service:
Infantry

Country: United Kingdom
I am trying to find the missing Great War medals belonging to my great grandad, Corporal George TURNER. The missing medals consist of the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. They disappeared from my great uncle's house when he died and no one knows what happened to the medals. His First World War medal card states that George served with the Ox and Bucks Regiment and the Worcestorshire Regiment. He may have had two different service numbers, these being 25220 or 44317 and I am not sure what may be stamped on the medals. Thanks.

Unit No: 9

Corps/Service:
Air Force/Flying Corps

Country: Australia
I am searching for the original Second World War medals which were awarded to my father, Murray Thomas BARLING. The medal set consists of the 1939-1945 Star, Africa Star, Pacific Star, 1939-1945 War Medal and the 1939-1945 Australia Service Medal. The missing medals were left to my younger brother and for one reason or another they cannot be found. My father, Murray Thomas BARLING was born on the 2nd of January, 1923 at Dubbo in New South Wales. According to the World War Two Nominal Roll, he enlisted into the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force) on the 24th April, 1942 and discharged from the 9 Aircrew Training Unit in 1946. I was printing a book on the Barling family and required a photo of dads medals, that is when they discovered they could not find the medals. If by any chance the medals can be found the family will only be too happy to pay the asking price or whatever we have to do to get them back. Dads name and number are stamped on each medal. All the best Terry
