Service Medal - McKenna, P.J. 28793 I am trying to locate the family of Patrick Joseph McKenna 28793 formerly of Sutherland NSW, family from Balmain. I have his WW1 campaign medal which is in our possession as Patrick (Paddy) was a boarder at a house owned by my late grandfather and grandmother in Sutherland.

I would prefer this medal to be in the possession of the family of Paddy. Any assistance in locating his family would be grateful. I believe that his daughter may be high up in the legal profession in Sydney.
