LOST – MISSING – STOLEN – SOLD

Families and  descendants are looking for missing medals of  their ancestors …

As we commemorate the final year of the 100th Anniversary of World War 1, the “The Great War” or “War to End all Wars” (it was neither ‘great’ nor did it ‘end’ all wars) we do so by remembering and honouring the memory of a generation of New Zealand’s young fighting men and women whose lives were cut short by their selfless desire to ‘volunteer’ for this disastrous slaughter.  Descendants of these deceased men and women have been sharply reminded over the last three years of the sacrifices they made to secure the freedoms we enjoy today.  

Regrettably many of the war medals and commemorative mementos awarded for their service, or received by the grief stricken families of the dead, have been lost, stolen, sold and even given away over the years.  Still many more survive in private collections world-wide.  Some are regularly traded or auctioned on the internet and a few are discovered randomly.   

Interest in finding family medals of WW1 and WW2 veterans in particular, has never been greater.  Medals that still exist, once recovered, can provide an opportunity for descendant families to re-connect with the memory of a veteran ancestor, and an opportunity to honour their service and sacrifice by wearing their medals on appropriate occasions.

While attendance at an occasion for Remembrance is about honouring and remembering those who have served, wearing their war medals provides a personal, tangible connection to the veteran.  When our children wear a veteran family member’s medals they are visually educating the next generation in the protocol and traditions associated with Remembrance.   A family’s medals are the fundamental and essential element for demonstrating to others how we honour the memory and sacrifice of veterans – with respect and dignity.

Requests to find Family medals 

MRNZ is contacted regularly by families throughout New Zealand and overseas with requests to find family medals that have been lost or are missing for a variety of reasons.  Whilst we will find a family or descendant with whom to reunite medals that have been found/donated, we do not look for missing medals of families.  We can however provide you advice on ‘where and how’ to conduct your own search.  

Lost or Missing Medals

The medals listed below are being sought by families and descendants who have proven their identity and ancestral heritage, to our satisfaction.  If you can provide any information that could lead to us to any of these missing medals, we would be very pleased to hear from you.   

If you would like to list your LOST or MISSING medals on this page please contact us on: 027-94-4495 or 03-546-7728, or email us at [email protected], or send us the details on our Contact Form
