Irish treasure hunter returns war badge to Vale
A LONG lost First World War medal has been returned to its family home in Oving after being found on a remote beach in Ireland.
It was picked up by keen treasure hunter Stephen Hunter, 28, who trawled through stacks of historical documents to finally trace it back to Edward Lewis Brunswick from the Aylesbury area, who died in 1975.
He was then able to find Edward’s son Roy, who is the oldest living ancestor of the war hero and was delighted to have the medal returned.
Roy, 86, said: “I knew nothing of it until just now but obviously I am very happy to get it back.
