Looking for my grandmother!

Hi all, can anyone help me find someone who's date of birth is unknown? all i know is the year my mum was born (1936) in Kent England and her mother died a couple years after (so my mum was told). My mums name was Pyllis Cathleen Fuller and her mums name was Mary Elizabeth Louisa Fuller (Nee Cheek). the only thing i can find is that she married another man in about 1925, but not my mums dad (Phillip Charles Fuller)

Christine Mummery (now Mrs Peterson)

I am trying to find information about myself.

I served in the CMF (Citizens Military Forces) in the 1960's.

I cannot find anything on myself. 

Do not understand because all the males in my family have records but I do not.

Croix de Guerre

I would like to know the reason that an ancestor was awarded this medal in 1918.  His military records do not have the information only his letters requesting where it was to be sent.  He was Andrew Manton Graham No.35.. Can anyone help with this information.

Searching for information about Thomas Brian Tanner

Looking for information and next of kin of Thomas Brian Tanner who served in the Vietnam War.

Born 25 December 1933.

Have checked the nominal roll but nothing shows up. I know that he was airlifted out on the day he was due to come home as a chopper that he was near was blown up. Doctors gave him minimal chance of survival. He proved them wrong. He had a daughter Fiona who would currently be about 50 years of age. He lived in the Toongabbie area (NSW) for several years before…
