Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

Cromwell war veteran Jim Woods dis­plays his medals from World War II. Fam­ily wear­ing the medals of loved ones to An­zac ser­vices should wear them on their chest, on the right-hand side. Omakau RSA pres­i­dent David Neil said he en­cour­aged fam­ily mem­bers to dust off the war medals of fam­ily mem­bers and wear them to An­zac com­mem­o­ra­tions as a cel­e­bra­tion of their ser­vice. He said re­turned ser­vice­men and women who had re­ceived medals wore them on their chest on the left-hand side. Fam­ily mem­bers wear­ing medals of ser­vice­men and women who had died should pin medals on the right-hand side.
