My family is searching for the Death Plaque (Memorial Plaque or Dead Man's Penny), and First World War Medals of Private Osborne FISHER who served with the 16th Infantry Battalion, AIF (Australian Imperial Force) having embarked aboard HMAT Themistocles in 1915.

P.BARBUTO

P.BARBUTO

Medal Type: WW1 - World War 1 Pair

Service No: 3352
Unit No: 3rd Australian Light Horse

Corps/Service:
Mounted/ Lighthorse/ Cavalry

Country: Australia
I am searching for the First World War medals (British War Medal + Victory Medal)which were issued to my Grandfather, Philip BARBUTO. He enlisted on the 1st of March 1917; and at the conclusion of the war - he Returned to Australia on the 15th of May 1919. His medals were left to me upon his death in 1970, however for some reason they have left my family. I wish to recover the medals and am willing to pay for them on a no questions asked basis. A bit of history about my Grandpa Phil, He served with the 3rd Australian Light Horse Regiment, and was one of a handful of Italian immigrants to enlist in South Australia, as refered to in a recently published book "No need to be afraid: Italian settlers in South Australia between 1839 and the Second World War By Desmond O’Conner" "Before 1917 only the most patriotic Italians had returned to Italy from Australia to fight against the Austrians, and there had not been pressure on them to join the Australian forces. One who did, however, was Felice (Philip) Barbuto, who had arrived in Australia in 1912 at the age of fourteen. In Adelaide in March 1917, still not naturalised , he enlisted in the 3rd Light Horse of the AIF and fought overseas. Six weeks after his return to Australia in July 1919 he applied for naturalisation." It would fill a void in the history of my family if we were able to recover this piece of my familys history.
