BACK at this year’s Anzac Day service in Narooma, local RSL club president Paul Naylor and vice president Reg Maxted spotted young Madelin Jones proudly wearing her great-great-grandfathers WWI medals.
The medals were simply pinned to her St Peter’s uniform.
Madelin marched to honour her great-great-grandfather William Arthur Langford, who contribution to the 1st Infantry (Light Horse Regiment) sent to Gallipoli in 1914.
The two men saw that the three precious medals were not properly mounted and so offered to have the medals professionally restored and mounted for the family.
On August 18, during the Vietnam Veterans Day and new Memorial unveiling at Club Narooma, the newly restored World War I medals were returned to the Langford family by Paul Naylor.
The Langford family would like to extend their greatest thanks and gratitude to Mr Naylor and Mr Maxted for organising the mounting of the medals and presenting them back to the family.
The medals are displayed at newly built Club Narooma until the end of the year.
