You get a medal just for serving in a war zone so he will have at least one medal

And thanks for the rep I didn't mean to sound rude

Wow, my grandfather did the samething and i'm not sure if he got any medals. He's still alive too he will be 89 in November!

My most prized possession would be my mum and step dad gave me $2000 cheque on my 16th birthday so i can save up for a car.

Rest In Peace, Elena Baltacha

Mine cooked for all the soldiers from 1944-45. I forget exactly where he was stationed ( it was more than one place ) overseas during the war. It has been atleast 10 years since he talked about it! Maybe i should bring it up again when i visit my grandparents . His mind is still as sharp as a tack at age 84 .

Gnight ( well good morning to all the Aussies ) ! ...
