My daughter is in the Army now and would love to wear her grandparents medals on her chest when she marches on Anzac Day.
You can get information about medal entitlements from:
For more information about the Department of Defence's replacement medal policy, please seehttp://www.defence.gov.au/medals/Content/+050%20Honours%20Policy/+0...
You can search for the WWII service records of your daughter's grandparents using our database - the names of all people who served in the Defence forces in WWI and WWII have all been listed.
1. Go to http://naa.gov.au/collection/using/search/, click on the 'NameSearch' tab and enter the service person's family name.
2. Select the category of records you are looking for from the drop down box. and click search.
3. If you have a reasonably common name that retrieves a lot of search results, you will be given an option to refine your search, using either given names or service number.
4. If you would like to purchase a copy of the record, click on the 'Request copy' button and follow the prompts. If you see an icon that looks like a document - it means there is already a digital copy of the record available for the item - just click on the icon to see the real thing!
