Victorian Police are appealing for public assistance in locating the family of a war veteran after a stash of his war medals was found hidden in an old piece of furniture.

A retired Homicide Detective in Warrandyte found the original set of war medals in an old piece of wooden furniture he purchased at a garage sale in the Doncaster area more than a decade ago.

The Detective, who worked for Victoria Police for over 30 years, surrendered his find to the Warrandyte Police station on 3 May 2022.

The set of medals includes the 1939-1945 Star, Pacific Star, War Medal, and the Australian Service Medal 1939-1945 and are believed to belong to Mr David Bruce Welsford.

Born in August 1924, Welsford lived his entire life in the eastern and northeast suburbs with his last known address being in Doncaster.

Mr Welsford passed away in 2001 and his wife, Lorrie Welsford, passed away in 1999.

It is believed that the couple did not have children, however, Lorrie hay has had children from a previous marriage.

Victoria Police are continuing to make inquiries in the hope of tracking down any of Mr Welsford’s family so that the medals can be returned to his loved ones.

Photos of the medals have been posted by Victoria police, and anyone who knew Mr Welsford or who may have any further information is urged to contact Warrandyte Police Station on (03) 9844 3231.
