The war service medals of Lieutenant Reginald John HUNTER are missing and are sought for return. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, Reginald boarded HMAT Berrima (A35) at Port Melbourne on the 19th August, 1914 bound for New Guinea against the German wireless station at Rabaul. He survived this action in 1914 and was sent to Gallipoli and then the Western Front, only to be killed right near the end of the war. His brother was killed at Gallipoli. Their mother Hughena Grace Hunter opened her place up in Sydney to service personnel as a half way house during WW2.

A.G.RYDER

A.G.RYDER

Medal Type:
Service No: 26465
Unit No: Royal Engineers

Corps/Service:
Engineers

Country: United Kingdom
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.
