Ipswich region World War Two veterans and their families have been urged to apply for a special commemorative medallion and certificate to mark the end of the conflict.

Saturday August 15  marked the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Pacific. 

Shadow Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Member for Blair, Shayne Neumann said it's an opportunity for locals to recognise and share the stories of Second World War veterans in our community. 

He says the medallion and certificate was available to every living World War Two veteran and can be arranged through his office if you have any trouble accessing them.
