Country: Australia
I am seeking to make contact with anybody who has ancestry with my paternal grandfather who fought at Gallipoli and was wounded at Lone Pine. He returned to Australia and we believe he assisted with the recruitment marches on the South Coast of NSW . The story goes that my grandfather left his wife and 3 children when my father was about 3 or 5 years of age. No one knows what happened to my grandfather, where he lived or where & when he died. His army service number was 2101 - John Henry ARMSTRONG or John Harry ARMSTRONG (as noted on his two attestation forms) and he embarked as part of the 6th Reinforcements for the 3rd Infantry Battalion, AIF. (A1640 this was written in pen onto the form) He was born on the 3rd of May, 1891 in the parish of St Marys, Nottingham England. I did purchase his Veterans Affairs case file in 1999 but the cover letter indicated that some information was missing from case series A4730 and mentioned another series number. Also the letter indicated that repatriation file A2423 did not have a corresponding personal case file... and that there were gaps in the holdings. His enlistment papers state he joined on the 19/05/1915 and signed his attestation on the 25th of May, 1915. At time of enlistment he lived at 48 Frederick Street, St Peters Sydney Australia. Interestingly another attestation form for Voluntarily Enlistment states that: His number is 311 and lists joining on 3rd May 1916 and notes his birth place as Newark-on-trent. It also records his service in the AIF as 299 days and his service in A.F. Corps as 5 months Recording his regiment or corp as: Army Pay Corps. His address was then recorded as 84 Unwins Bridge Road, St Peters. His Wife was: Millicent Florence Armstrong (nee Bevan) Other paperwork in his case file indicates he was wounded in the foot at a battle in Lone Pine. His war records attested to his role in recrutiment marches and state that he participated in the South Coast March to Freedom column and proved himself a first class recruiting speaker. The letter was a request from his Captain asking for my grandfathers release to assist with organising committee this letter was dated 11th September, 1918 and has an approved stamp on it dated 14th of September, 1918 and a stamp R. 12278 which I wonder may relate to his repatriation number. Any further help or guidance that any person may be able to provide will be appreciated. I would really like to know where he lived and where he died and is buried. It would also be a real treat if it turned out he started another family somewhere. Any person who may know the whereabouts of his missing war service medals, could you please be kind enough to contact me through the Medals Gone Missing website. Yours gratefully, Julie Armstrong.

Country: Australia
I am searching for the First World War Medals of Private Henry Lawrence QUAMBY. The First World War Embarkation Roll indicates that he boarded HMAT Hororata on the 17th of April, 1915 at Port Melbourne with the service number 2082 as part of the 15th Battalion, AIF. However, it is evident that he was sent back to Australia July of 1915. He then embarked again under the number 2055 and joined his unit (21st Battalion) on Gallipoli. Then in March of 1916 for certain reasons, he was sent back to Australia again. It appears that he then enlisted for a second time, under the alias of Harry JACKSON. It is not known under which name or number he may have war medals issued. He was my great-grandfather...any help in find his medals would be greatfully appreciated.

Service No: NX27147
Unit No: 2/30

Infantry

Country: Australia
Missing Second World War Medals of NX27147 J.C. PARSONS I am searching for my great uncle’s lost WW2 medals. James Charles Parsons was born on the 26 September 1916 in Picton NSW and grew up in Bankstown NSW. James enlisted into the Australian army on the 24th June 1940 and completed his training with the 20th Infantry training battalion in Wallgrove NSW and was then posted to the 2/30th Infantry battalion AIF. The battalion was raised & trained in Tamworth NSW before leaving on the ship Johan Van Oldenbarnevelt for Singapore to fight the advancing Japanese. During the war James was promoted to the rank for Corporal and worked in the regimental aid post as a medic. James tended to the sick and wounded of the 2/30th battalion during intense fighting against the Japanese including major battles the 2/30th BN fought at Gemencheh, Gemas and Ayer Hitam, and on Singapore Island. Then on the 15th February 1942 (the fall of Singapore), all Commonwealth forces were either killed or captured as Lieutenant General Arthur Percival, the British commander in Singapore, called for a ceasefire and made the difficult decision to surrender. My great uncle James spent the rest of the war as a POW as did the whole 8th division in such camps as Changi Gaol, Thomson Road, Mount Pleasant, Caldecott Hill, Bukit Timah & River Valley Road until his release on the 13/9/1945 when he started his long trip home. During this time, his wife Jean Agnes Parsons was left to fight her own battles not knowing his fate. They only had less then two years of married life together before he left for war. Also on the home front left not knowing his fate was my grandmother Eileen and his brothers Reggie and Charlie. Charlie also served at the 101st Australian general hospital in Katherine during the war and his other sister Annie and parents Catherine & Reginald (my great grandparents). After the war ended and James returned to his Blue Mountains home in Katoomba NSW with wife Jean, life wasn’t the same. After over 3 yrs as a POW he suffered poor heath from the conditions of the POW camps. Sadly, on the 16th November 1966 my great uncle James (Jimmy) died leaving behind his loving wife and family. Jean never remarried as her love for James was still as strong as when they married. Then 31 yrs later in 1997, Jean & James were finally together again. Their final resting place is at the Katoomba Cemetery with a stunning view of the mountains. If any one knows the location of these medals could you please either contact me or the website as our family would like to have them back. We enjoy a proud military background in our family and take great pride in our family members who have served this great country. I don’t have an exact date the medals were lost but think it was some time after Jean past away in 1997. Ray Grima 0402126580
