Paul,

Its not uncommon not to find a record of any awards. Many men were informed during the war of awards but they were lost along the way (paper work that is) or were rejected by higher HQ and the word never came back to the unit.

If the award was not Gazetted in Army Orders then it is not real.

Write to the AWM or to Neil Smith in Melbourne as his rates are reasonable and can confirm it for you. If you need his address ley me know.

S.B
