After contacting and requesting information from several archives and foundations, I have made an analyses of the information. With the result I contacted the Dutch government to Posthumously award these medals to both of my deceased grandfathers. If you have a father/grandfather still Alive or deceased, who served in the Netherlands East Indies during the pacific war, and did get any awards of recognition: CONTACT ME!! I will be at your service to assist you with any information 4 free
