A.BOSTON

A.BOSTON

Medal Type: WW1 - 1914-1915 Star Medal Trio

Service No: 3249
Unit No: 10

Corps/Service:
Infantry

Country: Australia
My family is searching for the missing First World War medals of Thomas and Angus BOSTON. These missing medals consist of the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and the Victory Medal of both men. Also their Memorial Plaques, colloquially known as "Death Plaques" or "Dead Man's Pennies". As reported by Medals Gone Missing, one particular medal (Victory Medal) posthumously awarded to Angus BOSTON sold on ebay in December 2013 and we had no idea that this sale was taking place until AFTER it was sold. My generation of BOSTONs have never seen any of the medals that were awarded to these two members of our family. Thomas and Angus BOSTON enlisted from Naracoorte in south eastern South Australia, though Thomas was born in Mount Gambier. Angus BOSTON was the older of the two brother who enlisted into the AIF on the 14th August, 1915. Thomas was 22 years old at the time of his enlistment and was working as a baker. Angus was 26 and working as a labourer. They were standing in line together when they joined up, as they were allocated consecutive service numbers. Angus was 3249 and Thomas was 3250. Both men left Australia as part of the 10th Battalion, however were re-allocated to the 50th Battalion in Egypt during the expansion of the AIF. Both brothers served in France. Angus was wounded at Pozieres in 1916, suffering a gun shot wound to his arm. He recovered from this wound and rejoined his unit. Thomas was promoted to Corporal and when the brothers were reunited, they tragically both were killed in action on the very same day, at Noreuil. Information suggests that one brother was shot and the other killed in action whilst attempting a rescue. Descendants of Angus and Thomas BOSTON still reside at Naracoorte in South Australia. My family would be extremely grateful to have any missing Medals and their Memorial Plaques returned. We still have photographs of the two diggers hanging on a wall of the family home and their sacrifice is not forgotten in my family. It is with genuine sincerity that we ask for any medals awarded to Thomas BOSTON or Angus BOSTON to be returned to us.

Service No: 1385
Unit No: 18

Corps/Service:
Army Service Corps

Country: Australia
I am searching for the First World War medals of my grandfather, Arthur Charles TRICKER. He was awarded the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal This group was earned by my grandfather who enlisted twice in World War 1. The First World War Embarkation Roll indicates that he left Australia aboard HMAT Ceramic (A40) from Sydney on the 25th June, 1915. He was Returned to Australia after he was wounded at Gallipoli. As a member of the 18th Infantry Battalion, I believe that he sustained his wounds in the vicinity of Hill 60 during the August Offensive. He then rejoined the AIF. His second service number was 15091. My grandfather survived the 1914-1918 war and enlisted into the AMF (Australian Military Force) when the Second World War broke out. His World War 2 service number was N389198. Also missing is his R.A.S Badge No.C11550 (2nd issue) and Next of Kin badge 80248 or 234934 issued to my grandmother. I can't find a number for his Wound Badge re Gallipoli. My N.O.K email address is sheralee.ide@live.com.au or Anthony.ide@live.com.au. I am very keen to find the originals but may have to settle for duplicates. With the Centenary of the First World War, I would be most grateful if any of these missing medals or missing badges could be returned to my family.
W.SEALEY

W.SEALEY

Medal Type: WW1 - World War 1 Pair

Service No: 703623
Unit No: 23

Corps/Service:
Infantry

Country: United Kingdom
I am searching for my Great Uncle's medals "gone missing". He is entiltled to a First World War pair, consisting of the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. His name is Walter SEALEY and his service details which appear on his medals could be 7581 or 703623 Private Walter SEALEY. 23rd London Regiment. Actually he was with the 2/23rd Londons but I "think" it will only be "23" on his medals. Walter SEALEY died of wounds received at the attack of the 60th Division at Tel el Sheria on November 7th 1917 into Turkish trenches (he sustained bayonet wounds in stomach according to his death certificate). He died in CAIRO on 20th November, 1917 where he is buried in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery. His medals have been missing for some time. I have got his Memorial Plaque, also known as a death plaque as this was sent to my Grandfather. I would very much appreciate it if these missing war medals could come back to my family in time for the Centenary of the 1914-1918 War. I have listed these medals under both service numbers, just in case.

J.SULLIVAN

J.SULLIVAN

Medal Type:
Service No: 5137

Corps/Service:
Infantry

Country: Australia
Name: PTE J. (Jack) SULLIVAN Service Number: 5137 Missing – Medals & Other Items issued by the Australian Defence Department:  WW1 – 1914-1915 Star Medal Trio  1914-18 Memorial (Death) Plaque  Illuminated Commemorative Scroll & Kings Message  Mother and Widow’s Badge/Ribbon (1 star attached)  Female Relatives Badge (to mother – number on rear unknown)  1967 ANZAC Commemorative Medallion (engraved & issued to then surviving sister) Corps/Service: 12th ASC Coy, 3LHB Train (Dvr) – Gallipoli ; 56th Aust (Infantry) Bn, – Somme Country: Australia 5137 PTE J. SULLIVAN – Born John Ormsby Sullivan, a New Zealander born in Dunedin in 1891. He enlisted in the AIF on 20 Oct 1914 simply as 5137 PTE J. (Jack) Sullivan, therefore any medals may be engraved as either: PTE J. SULLIVAN, or PTE J.O. SULLIVAN. He was KIA on the Somme on 9 Oct 1916, aged 24yrs and buried in Croix du Bac Cemetery, France. As the great-grandson and sole remaining direct descendant of PTE Sullivan (and a former serviceman of 37yrs myself), I am attempting to find his WW1 medal Trio (1914-15 Star, British War Medal, Victory Medal), Memorial (Death) Plaque and/or any other associated badges, documents etc that were sent to his parents in Dunedin following his death. All items were issued by the Australian Defence Department. PTE Sullivan’s father (Mr John Sullivan Snr) was the last known custodian of his son’s posthumous awards These we believe were sold during the early 1930s in Dunedin, since at that point in time Mr Sullivan was in destitute circumstances. He died in 1933. Jack’s only surviving sister remained a spinster until her death in Christchurch in 1967 (she applied for and received her brother’s ANZAC Medallion issued in 1967 – its whereabouts is also unknown). I am PTE Sullivan’s only great-grandson via his only child, a daughter Thora, whom he left in Dunedin to enlist in the AIF in November 1914 at Broadmeadows Camp in Melbourne. I would be very appreciative of any help in tracing any of the items listed. To my knowledge there is also no known photograph of PTE Jack Sullivan, or his family. Please contact this site, or I. D.
