Police Wrap – 31 July

By johnboy - 31 July 2008 37

This in today from ACT Policing:

    1. Bad boys in Dickson assaulted a man at 4pm near the Dickson Motor Registry but were swiftly brought to justice:

    “Two of the males aged 15 and 16 have been charged with common assault and will appear before the ACT Children’s Court this morning. The third, aged 16, is assisting police with their enquiries.”

    2. A sad case of an 86 year old in Ainslie realising two weeks late that he’s been burgled and lost his medals as well as personal documents and money. The medals are standard service issue, but he earned them and they’re gone.


    3. Some menace to society is wanted for smashing up maltese terriers in Gungahlin (one dead, one with the vet).

    Police are investigating this callous act and are appealing for anyone who may have heard or witnessed anything suspicious around Gundaroo Drive, near Donnelly Lane, Fishlock Lane and Swain Street, Gungahlin on Wednesday July 23, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1300 888 000 or the RSPCA (ACT) on 6287 8100.

Heritage medals in Perth is also highly regarded, but for ease, Edlins will do. Their quality is pretty reasonable.

Thumper, Most admiral of you. I too will chip in $20

I also have a bit of experience with medals and replicas. I can also tell you that not all replicas are the same. Edlins do a good job but if you want real quality medals try Christies in Syd.

I can’t drop by ABN tonight as I have SES training after work but I will try to work out some way to get you $20

On another note there is another very admiral gentleman by the name of Lt Col Glyn Llanwarne who has made it his personal mission in life to return lost medals to their owners or family. He has done some great work and independently sources originals and the researches the recipient to try and track them down. He is well known in the militaria field. I will send him an e-mail so he can keep an eye out for them.

Now if only there were some way of private messaging Thumper…

johnboy 1:21 pm 31 Jul 08

RiotACT Pty Ltd is going to have to sit this one out…

But if you can get a quote I’m happy for you to make the running on this.

jennybel75 1:21 pm 31 Jul 08

Yup, get a quote and I’ll chip in a few $ as well.

Thumper 1:21 pm 31 Jul 08


$22 per replica medal and $25 mounting for each.

Comes to $235 all up.

Skidbladnir 1:18 pm 31 Jul 08

Go on, get us a quote.

peterh 1:18 pm 31 Jul 08

this is the kind of bastardry that amazes me. and to think, this old bloke defended their country, making sure that they grew up in a free society.

don’t let them go to the new prison when they are caught. a prison like that is too good for them. send em to goulburn.

Thumper 1:18 pm 31 Jul 08


if you can find out from the AFP who the old digger is we can do this.

i’ll duck by All Bar this arvo and start it off with a $20.

I’m estimating the replica rack will cost around $150-$200 but I’ll try to get a better idea this arvo.

jakez 1:17 pm 31 Jul 08

Go for it Thumper. I’ll chip in what I can (migh not be much) but it seems like a nice thing to do if it would be appreciated.

Thumper 1:15 pm 31 Jul 08

Edlins in the city does replica medals so I can get a quote off them for

The Pacific Star
War Medal
Australian Service Medal
Australian Service Medal 1945-1975
1939-1945 Star

Court mounted.

Good idea Thumper.


Thumper 1:11 pm 31 Jul 08

Anyway, still stands.

Thumper 1:10 pm 31 Jul 08

Re 2.

Can we find this guys name and lets all chip in to get him a replica set.

I’m thinking 4-5 WW2 gongs.

Pacific Star, 39/45 star, War medal, ASM 39-45, and the Defence medal.
