Coronation and Jubilee medals to J.J. Stolz


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Recently I've been researching some parts of my wife's family history and I discovered that her Great-Grandfather, Rev. Johannes Julius Stolz, was awarded the 1953 Coronation Medal. My query is can anyone confirm this award and I think he was also awarded the 1935 Jubilee Medal and the 1937 Coronation Medal. All awards would have been made to him in Australia.

If anyone can confirm these three medal awards it would be greatly appreciated.

All the best,

David

Here's the answer!

"Australian Awards of the Coronation and Jubilee medals by David Helfgott confirms all awards you mention.

All with his connection to the Lutheran church. 1935 Jubilee is in the South Australian list."

Hello Michael,

Thank you very much for your reply to my inquiry. It is very much appreciated. Rev. Stolz was General President (equivalent of Archbishop) of the United Evangelical Lutheran Church in Australia from 1925 to 1953. Until I discovered that he had been awarded the 1953 Coronation Medal it had never occurred to me that he would have been entitled to any type of medals at all!

All the best,

David

David,

Do you know if the medals are still in the family?  They were issued un-named, although I have seen a few that were privately engraved, and one 1937 to a member of the Life Guards that was impressed.

It would be a simple matter to recreate the group.

Hello Michael,

As far as I know the medals are no longer with the family. I suspect that they were thrown out in some type of 'tidy up' after J.J. Stolz died. I am going to get the three medals that he was entitled to so that at least a representation of his awards is in the current family.

Regards,

David

My father's brother-in-law received the 1953 Coronation with the RCAF.  My mother's brother was awarded the Canadian Centennial Medal, which is with my cousin.  My aunt was awarded the 125th Anniversary of Confederation, but we couldn't find it after she died in 2001.  I have the first group, and have miniatures for my other uncle and aunt.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
