Trove Detective: A Real Turner Bonanza

Good news!

Jonathon Turner WW1 PhotoTop row – Frank, Jack, George & Len Turner
Front row – William (father), Syd, Roy & Bill Turner

Thanks to George’s grandson, Jonathon Turner we now have this photograph of the Turner Family (about 1919-1920) which was mentioned in a previous blog. All seven sons returned from World War I and are probably wearing a discharged returned soldier’s badge like the one below. Thanks to  the Australian War Memorial who knew this badge but not the father’s one. No idea about the father’s badge so if you know, please let us know too.
