Mervyn Buckley is looking for Lieutenant J D Spinney, Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve (RNVR)

Last seen: location unknown date unknown

My wife has possession of the Second World War Service medals of her late father (Lieutenant R C Thom of the Gordon Highlanders). The Defence Medal in the cluster is in the name of the officer sought above and has clearly been mounted as the result of a mix-up. I would like to remedy this error with the above officer or their family members if possible.
