A very interesting & hard to find MiD group of 5 to Gilbert Conyard of the 2/3 Bn who was captured sometime in April during the evacuation of Greece. He was also Mentioned in Despatches for Gallant & Distinguished services in the Mediterranean (a rare theatre for MiD’s). Stars are unnamed Defence, War with MiD emblem & ASM correctly impressed to NX11413 G L CONYARD with box & early issue slip plus both compliment cards from army. Also a Greek war medal unnamed. Sadly Gilbert never lived to receive his medals & probably didn’t even know he was MiD, as he committed suicide in 1950 by Gassing himself in his kitchen. Doing a quick Google search produces many results for Gilbert including a remarkable story that he fathered a daughter while a POW in Austria! According to the story he was not too happy to return to Australia & apparently tried unsuccessfully to bring his daughter & family to Australia, this & the fact he was married may have been the reason for his suicide? I will list some links below. The item “WW2 Medal group to POW captured Greece & Mid Greece. 2/3 Bn Interesting story” is in sale since Tuesday, November 22, 2016.
