Looking for information on when Patrick came to Australia. He was born in Donegal, Ireland in 1832 and married Rose Lynch in South Australia 1856.

Leslie Raymond Windon

Wondering if its possible to have my father-in-laws Service Records open and provided by NAA quicker than 6 week to to several months.

We are trying to identify service medals he would have been issued.  Leslie Raymond Windon enlisted 22 Apr. 1941 and discharged 08 Oct 1942.  Rank; Private.  We believe he was in Papa New Guinea.  Posting at Discharge was 53 Battalion and discharged at Sydney Showground.

Leslie Windon was born 18 March 1915 in Crows Nest, NSW.
