John Sidney Owens


Hello everyone,

I have been asked find the family of NX32490 John Sidney Owens so I can return two WWII medals to them. The only details I have is from the WWII nominal roll which are:

Date of Birth 7 May 1916
Place of Birth Gunnedah NSW
Date of Enlistment 17 Jun 40
Date of Discharge 11 Oct 45
Unit 2/1 Machine Gun Bn
Rank SGT
NOK J Owens

The medals were found in Sydney.

I was wondering if any member of this froum had any details of this veteran.

Thank you.

Yours in service,

Glyn

Dont have any info on him but that was my fathers unit and they still have an association. They still march as a group in Brisbane each year so they may have contact details for him. I will ask around for you

Thank you Rob,

I came across a reference on the Internet to a unit history that was published in 1997. I am trying to track down the author. There was also mention of a unit association but I couldn't find a POC.
I appreciate your assistance and look forward to any more news.

Yours in service,
