A Vernon man wants to reunite some Second World War medals he found 18 years ago with their rightful owner.
Martin Bokesch, 61, took to Facebook last week in the hopes he’d find a needle in a haystack: the rightful owner of the medals his wife found in a used desk lying on a Montreal street 18 years ago.
“Information is coming in literally by the minute, and phone calls continuously.”
The post had been shared more than over 34,0000 times by Monday afternoon.
Bokesch says he’s confident they’ll be returned because every medal tells a tale.
“These people … hundreds of thousands that served, each are under themselves unique an individual story.”
