Hi Jan
I would say devine intervention (brilliant), your great uncle really wants his medals back where they belong. Probably sold originally out of disinterest or simply because they were worth something which is quite sad. I do hope you and your brother are lucky enough to get the medals back.
Good Luck. Carol

Just a note of encouragement to never give up searching !

I googled over the Christmas break when I had had enough of turkey and entertaining ............ great uncle's name and Navy roll number from his naval records which I got from National Archives. Couldn't believe my eyes.

Found that his medals are in an auction coming up soon so brother and I are going to put in a bid to try and get them back in the family........ wonder who had them and why, how did they come by them..........so many questions. Still don't know much about him but hope we are successful in our bid... Wonder what was it that prompted me to search just at this time?
