Found out after all these years where my pops war medals are....

Article about: Makes you wonder how many medals were never issued to soldiers. I spose most soldiers just wanted to get home to a normal life with there family .

    That's great work tailor marc. I'm just about to send the first letter in regards to my Wife's Grandfather's medals. How long did it take for you to get a reply?

    Thanks Alex, took quite some time. Around 8-12 months. One you get the letter saying what medals are going to be issued then it will only take 2-3 months

    Wow, the wheels of government move slowly. I better get off my butt and do it sooner rather than later. At least its worth the wait.

    Yep well worth the wait.
    I just got off the phone to Defence honour's and awards. I asked them about the other 2 medals. These 2 had to be signed off by the Govener General and was signed off last week and they are being made as i speak
    I will post pictures up as soon as i recieve them
