T.S.CRESWICK

T.S.CRESWICK

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

Service No: 2536
Unit No: 37

Corps/Service:
Infantry

Country: Australia
I am searching for the Memorial Plaque (also called a "Dead Man's Penny") to my great uncle, Private Thomas Sefton CRESWICK. The First World War Embarkation Roll indicates that he left Sydney on the 9th of November, 1916 aboard HMAT Benalla. He served in the 37th Infantry Battalion, AIF in Belgium. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) records indicate that he was killed in action between the 7th and the 9th of June, 1917. His older brother, Private Norman Lachlan CRESWICK, was killed a few days later on the 11th June 1917, also at Messines. Like his brother Norman, Thomas has no known grave, and his name is on the Menin Gate at Ypres. Our family does not know what happened to their Memorial Plaques, and we would be just overwhelmed if they could be recovered.

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

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.
