    Watch eBay... admin collects military memorabilia, so a good person to keep an eye open, as we all will.

    Yes, ebay is the likely place.....at some stage.

    They arent super valuable or anything, under $500, but they are something that is priceless if its a family group (sounds like it).
    served in the 2/3 Pioneers so they are reasonably desirable from a collectors point of view. Nearly a million Australians served in WW2 and realistically not many served in an infantry role. The Pioneers were tradesman, who were also trained to drop tools and fight as infantry.

    Its a pity there isnt honor in thieves these days, once upon a time a lot wouldnt take them out of respect.
