Hello and welcome to my web site 'Lost Medals Australia'. I also have a blog which is updated a little more frequently than the website and is located here:


This site is dedicated to returning medals that I have in my possession to the veteran's nearest kin. Since 2000 I have been acquiring, researching and then returning lost medals to veterans or their families. I started out purchasing medals however; now I am supported through donations of 'found' medals and I no longer purchase them. I now use all my resources for research and trying to locate families. I do this free of any charge or fee.

This alone keeps us very busy. However we do receive quite a number of emails from people who are trying to locate their relatives medals but unfortunately we do not have the time to assist them in their quest. Some helpful hints for people searching for their relatives' medals can be found here.

If you are searching for lost medals, I hope they are in the current list I'm researching. If any of the names are familiar to you and you have information that will help me locate the veteran, or family I would appreciate your assistance. I hope you enjoy this site.

Over the years I've managed to establish a fantastic network that has provided me assistance. This has helped me to track down records and in turn where the medal should go. One way I have managed to keep costs down is to have the list of medals I'm researching published in service organisation's papers. This has proved to be a very successful way of get names out to the public. I have been very fortunate to have received assistance and support from the Australian War Memorial, the Returned and Services League National HQ and the state branches of the NSW and Victorian of the RSL. My most notable support has come from the Queensland Branch of the RSL; to them I am most indebted. All those who have provided assistance have their respective web site accessible through the links page. I would also like to thank Scott Revell who is the talent behind this web site and without whose help and suggestions it would not have been possible.
