LOST – STOLEN – MISSING

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

When we commemorate the service and sacrifices of the men, women and animals who served during the First World War (so called “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 those who served and in particular those whose lives were cut short by paying the ultimate price.  We, the descendants of those veteran men and women, some long forgotten, and those of more recent times, have an obligation to never forget their contribution when called to fight for the security of this country and freedoms we continue to enjoy.

Regrettably, many of the medals and mementos given to them for their service, or to the grief stricken families of the dead, have been lost, stolen, sold and even given away over many years.  A good number survive in private collections and museums both in New Zealand and world-wide.  Some are traded or auctioned on the internet whilst others can still be found randomly in all manner of places.   

Interest in finding family medals, particularly of WW1 and WW2 veterans, has never been greater.  To be able to wear the medals of a veteran family member can be a great source of personal and family pride.  While attendance at an occasion of Remembrance is all about honouring and remembering those who served (or died as a result of that service), wearing a veteran’s medals at these times can is a personal and tangible way of connecting with the memory of that veteran.  When our older children attend such occasions wearing a veterans medals, they are visually educating their juniors, younger family members, by demonstrating the traditions and protocol expected when wearing medals.  Finding missing family medals should be a priority for every family – the longer they remain missing the harder the are to ever recover.   Remember, wearing a family veteran’s medals with respect and dignity is the way in which can demonstrate how we honour a veteran’s memory and the sacrifices they have made on our behalf. 

Do you know who in your family was in military service?  Do you know where their medals are?

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 work hard at finding a family or descendant whom we can reunite with medals that have been found/donated, the research time involved for these cases alone does not allow any time to undertake individual searches for family medals.  We can however provide you with advice on ‘how and where’ to undertake your own search.  

Collectors, Owners and Traders of Lost – Missing – Stolen medals

The medals listed below are wanted by families and descendants who have proven their identity and ancestral connection to the person named on the medal, to our satisfaction.  If you as a medal collector, owner or trader have any of the medals listed below, and are willing to return or offer the medals for Buy-Back then I would be very pleased to hear from you.  Please contact me to arrange the details of any such offer for the family concerned.  Your anonymity in any such transaction is assured. 

Listing your L-M-S medals

You are welcome to list your L-M-S medals on this page for FREE.  We will contact you in the event the medals become available/are offered for Buy-Back from the owner. 

When making a request to list medals, please indicate if you are willing to consider a BUY-BACK of the medals if offered by the current owner, and/or if you are prepared to offer a REWARD (no amount need be specified) for the opportunity of getting the medals back. 

When you make contact with MRNZ to list a medal, please provide as much of the following information as you can as this will help us to help you:

  • Full Name of medal Recipient; which War/Conflict (e.g. Boer, WW1, WW2, Other); which Military Service (e.g. NZ – Army; UK – Royal Navy etc)
  • If WW2 service medals, were they Named (privately engraved/impressed) – Yes/No/Unknown; When was the last time medals were seen – year/month/date (if known); Where were they last seen ?
  • If posted, was the item Tracked or Signature Required ?
  • Are you prepared to BUY-BACK the medals if offered – Yes/No ?
  • Are you prepared to offer a REWARD, and will this be additional to the BUY-BACK price (amount negotiable with owner) for the medals – Yes/No ?  
  • Your contact details:  Name,  Address,  E-mail,  Mobile phone  or  Land-line  Number

Replacement Medals

If you would like a replacement medal or set of medals (2 or more medals) to wear as an interim measure, pending the return of your missing medals, we can arrange these for you.  They are a relatively inexpensive option that we can also suitably mount for wearing.

Please note:  The NZDF only replaces medals during the lifetime of the former service person.  NZDF
cannot replace First World War medals and does not sell replica (copy) medals. Duplicate or replica medals
including miniature medals can be purchased from various medal dealers in New Zealand, whose contact
details can be found via an internet search for ‘replica medals NZ’ or in the Yellow Pages under
‘medals’.
