Corps/Service:
Infantry

Country: Australia
My Grandfathers World War 1 medals are missing. His name was William Smith TAYLOR and he was awarded the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. The First World War Embarkation Roll indicates that he boarded HMAT Benalla on the 1st of May, 1916 at port Sydney as part of the 35th Infantry Battalion. He was transferred from the 35th Battalion to the 34th Infantry Battalion during 1917 and held the rank of "Driver". Maybe last seen in the Hunter Region of New South Wales. Our family members do not know what happened to them and any assistance offered for us to recover these medals would be greatly appreciated.

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.

A.WALLACE

A.WALLACE

Medal Type: Pre WW1 - Queen's South Africa Medal

Service No: 303
Unit No: 2

Corps/Service:
Mounted/ Lighthorse/ Cavalry

Country: Canada
My name is Dan Wallace and I live in Kamloops, BC, Canada. My great grandfather, Andrew WALLACE, was a Canadian soldier in the Boer War (South African War). He was a member of the 2nd Regiment, Canadian Mounted Rifles and won the Queens South Africa medal with three clasps (Cape Colony, Transvaal and South Africa 1902) as a result. It is rumoured in our family that Andrew gave or traded his medal away in the 40s or 50s in Vancouver, BC. For the past few years, we have casually been trying to find this medal. I am now on a more serious quest and hope we can find his medal through your service. Any information or assistance with the return of our family medal would be very appreciative. Thank you
J.M.L.MACPHERSON

J.M.L.MACPHERSON

Medal Type:
Service No: NX422
Unit No: 110

Corps/Service:
Transport

Country: Australia
My family is searching for the missing war medals of our ancestor Jack Machattie Lord MACPHERSON. For service in the Great War, he was awarded the Military Cross, the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal, and the French Croix De Guerre. He re-enlisted into the Second AIF during World War Two and as a result, was awarded the Defence Medal, the 1939-1945 War Medal and the 1939-1945 Australia Service Medal. These are the medals which are subsequently missing. I had known that he served in the Middle East during World War Two and our family has applied for his 1939-1945 Star and Africa Star, which were never issued to him. So if we can recover his original war service medals, it is our intent to have the complete set mounted. The First World War Embarkation Roll indicates that he left Sydney on the 25th of June, 1915 aboard HMAT Berrima and served on the Gallipoli Peninsula for the latter part of the campaign. He was later sent to France, where he won the Military Cross and earned the Croix De Guerre. During World War One, his service number was 1267. During the Second World War, his service number was 2155 and according to the Worldl War Two Nominal Roll - it changed to NX422 when he joined the Second AIF. He served with the rank of Captain and due to the fact that he served in both wars, I have a duplicate listing under his First World War service number. Whilst I understand from a collector's point of view, these medals are very valuable....they are more valuable to our family and we would be very grateful if whoever has them in their collection - would consider returning them to us.
