A WWII veteran has become the latest Moorabool resident to be awarded with the Commemorative Medallion introduced in July, a first for the township of Ballan.
Eric Saltor was born in Scottsdale on the 7 November 1922, the eldest of 11 children. He now lives in the aged care facility at Ballan District Health & Care (BDH&C).
Mr Saltor’s daughter and son-in-law applied on his behalf for a medal and certificate recognising his service and contribution to the war effort.
