On the eve of ANZAC Day I thought this article was worth sharing with you.
An 82-year-old digger had his 13 Korean and Vietnam service medals stolen when his house was broken into on Monday while he and his wife were out.
According to the Herald-Sun
“Police officers at the Cabramatta command on Tuesday decided to chip in to have a supplier recreate the full set of medals in time for the digger’s Anzac Day appearances at the Sydney dawn service and his local RSL club.”
The police then surprised him at home with the medals on Wednesday.
What a wonderful thing for the police to do! (and the supplier to do it so quickly) 😀 Even though the medals aren’t the real thing I am sure they will still be special to him. Hopefully his real medals will be recovered soon enough.
