S8355 Able Seaman Fred Hayes served in the RAN during WWII. He married a little later in life and didn't have any children with his wife Daphne. It is though Daphne's family that I've located a family member who I'll send the medal to in the near future.
Thank you to Anna G who pointed me in the right direction and to Bob GG who provided me with some additional information and to whom I'll send the medal. This medal was originally sent to me by the Dee Why RSL.
The returned medal tally is now 1416.
