W.J.DURNAN

Medal Type: WW2 - Australian Four (Pacific)

Service No: NX36748
Unit No: 27

Corps/Service:
Army Service Corps

Country: Australia
My family is searching for the missing war service medals of William John DURNAN NX36748. This medal set consists of the 1939-1945 Star, Pacific Star, 1939-1945 War Medal and the 1939-1945 Australia Service Medal. He was born in Narrandera, NSW on the 21st April 1904 and his next of kin was Patrick Thaddeus Durnan which was his father. According to the World War Two Nominal Roll, William John DURNAN enlisted into the AIF on 29 August, 1940 and served as a member of HQ (Headquarters) of the 27 Infantry Brigade. This brigade consisted of 2/26th Infantry Battalion, 2/29th Infantry Battalion and the 2/30th Infantry Battalion. William was captured when Singapore fell and became a prisoner of war. He worked as a forced labourer to the Japanese on the Thai-Burma Railway. The National Archives of Australia confirms he was a prisoner of war Malaya, it also has paper work with a stamp on it from Changi and the letter to his father says he died from illness (beri beri) in Malai Camp, 6th September 1943. According to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission records (CWGC) William now lies buried in the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery in Thailand. My family has no idea as to the fate of his missing war service medals or his identification tags (dog tags). Any assistance to locate these missing war service medals would be greatly appreciated.
L.E.DOWSE

L.E.DOWSE

Medal Type:
Service No: 11819
Unit No: Airship Base Howden

Corps/Service:
Air Force/Flying Corps

Country: United Kingdom
My family is searching for the missing war service medals of Squadron Leader Leonard Ernest Dowse, Royal Air Force, late Royal Naval Air Service, an ex-airship hand who went on to serve as an Air Armaments Officer. Leonard Ernest Dowse, who was born in Alverstoke, Hampshire in September 1888, entered the Royal Marine Artillery in August 1906, but transferred to the Royal Naval Air Service in September 1912, most probably on account of his proficiency in gunnery - he scored 95% in 1907-08. Remaining employed in the U.K., he was advanced to Warrant Officer 2nd Class at the Barrow in Furness Airship Station in June 1917, where indeed he is listed as a gunnery specialist. Granted a commission in the Royal Air Force at the War’s end, he became a Technical Officer at the Airship Base at Howden in 1920, prior to being posted to No. 84 Squadron’s at Shaiba, Iraq in March 1922, and thence to No. 2 Armoured Car Company in Palestine. Returning to the U.K. in July 1926, he was employed as Air Armament Officer at No. 10 Group, Gosport, but in December 1932 he was posted in a similar capacity to No. 216 Squadron at Heliopolis in the Middle East. Once more returning to the U.K. in 1937, when he joined No. 1 Bomber Group at Upper Heyford, Dowse was placed on the Retired List in the rank of Squadron Leader in August 1941. He died in February 1963. My family has learned that the medals sold at auction to an unknown buyer, back in 2011. Sold by DNW (Dix Noonan Webb, 16 Bolton Street Piccadilly London). Should the current owner not wish to part with these medals, we would be most grateful just to know that they are safe and that our Great Grandfather's war service is being respected and appreciated. Should the current owner ever decide to sell these medals, our family would be very appreciative if we could be given the first opportunity to make the purchase. Yours gratefully. Descendants of Leonard Ernest DOWSE.
