2nd Lieutenant Vivian Garner and the Lost Plaque

 2nd Lieutenant Vivian Gilber Garner was featured with the story of his service in the AIF on The Empire Called and I Answered website.  The story was written by Rod Martin, whose name is well-known by followers of this blog, and published back in 2011.   

I was pleased to notice Vivian's photo pop up in my blog roll on the Lost Medals Australia blog, as Glyn Llanwarne managed to trace a relative to whom he could return a lost plaque.  Glyn's story of tracing the relatives (Viv left no descendants) is an interesting one, made even more so by the story of the relative, Bill Garner.

I commend both stories, linked above,  to readers.
