A man is on the hunt for his mother's World War II medal.
Peter Reynolds wants to find his late mother Pat Reynolds' Australian War Medal from 1939-45.
Mr Reynolds discovered the medal was not with his family when he moved his late father Jim Reynolds into care almost two years ago.
"Around February  I put my dad into care and we were in the process of selling his house," he said.
"One afternoon in his room he said he put the medal on loan.
"He did tell me where it was. I think it was at a school but I'm not certain."
Mr Reynolds and his father started to search for the medal, then his father went to hospital and died.
"Towards July/August  when I started to sort all of his stuff, I couldn't remember where he told me he put the medal on loan," he said.
"I'm pretty sure it was something to do with a women in war exhibition."
Mr Reynolds said there may have been other war-related mementos loaned with the medal.
"My father moved out of home [into care] in February ," he said.
"If anyone has tried to return the medal, he was no longer contactable via those numbers."
Mr Reynolds said his parents shared special memories from their time in service.
"They met in the air force. Reportedly my dad did the wolf whistle," he said.
"Mum had vibrant red hair and he was cheeky. He said 'hey blue, want to date?'.
"She became Jimmy's girl and the pilots knew to stay away."
Mr Reynolds said his parents, former Mittagong residents, were an active part of the community.
"I used to joke if you live within 10 kilometres, you were family," he said.
