There is mention that Noel wore an Army Combat Badge above his ribbons on his Police Uniform. The only possible reference I can find, at this time, is: On the WWII Roll – there is a Godfrey Noel GOLLEDGE, born 2 April 1924, who enlisted in the Army ( NX190850 (N440328)) on 7 May 1942 at Walcha, NSW and was Discharged on 7 March 1947. He nominated his NOK as Edward GOLLEDGE.
Did Noel lie about his age to join the Army? If so, he would of only have been 14 at the time.
The above Family Tree link shows that Noel Godfrey GOLLEDGE was one of 9 children to Edwin GOLLEDGE, Born & Died in Walcha, NSW. B: 1886 D: 1960 and wife Mary Isobel KEIGHTLEY Born & Died in Walcha, NSW. B: 1893 D: 1959.
