The photo of Oscar Auger's medals was donated to the webmaster for inclusion on this website.  In Sept of 2007 a member of Oscar's family viewed the site and contacted the webmaster to enquire about reuniting the medals with the family.

The collector was contacted and a few days later the medals were repatriated to the Auger family.  The webmaster takes great satisfaction in being able to assist in this.

Oscar Auger would be proud to know that both his family and the collecting community respect and honour his sacrifice during WW1.
