Miss France GOODWIN, Barney Street, Kiama, New South Wales, wrote to Base Records, Victoria Barracks, Melbourne, 11 August 1917: '... the only reason we wished for his next of kin's address was to write to his Mother if she was alive or his Father. The young soldier was a great friend of ours & we thought perhaps we could find out how he was wounded & when he died. I suppose you have the records of such. I had one parcel returned that we sent him. There is still another & I wanted his Mother to get it if possible.' Base Records replied, 20 August 1917, supplying the address requested, and adding: 'It is understood the practice of the overseas authorities is to distribute the contents of parcels for deceased members of the Australian Imperial Force amongst the soldiers' comrades. Any articles of value, however, would be returned to the sender.'Medals: British War Medal, Victory Medal
