Family plea to find war veteran who gave his medal to six-year-old boy during remembrance service

A six-year-old boy and his family are trying to find a war veteran who handed over his medal at a 100 year memorial ceremony.

Kaylen Palmer went to the Kimberley Remembrance Parade on November 11 with his granddad, Shaun Eyre, 63.

The pair, who go to the memorial together every year, were left speechless when a war veteran walked over and pinned his medal onto Kaylen's coat.

They started talking to the man who took out an envelope of pictures from his time during the war.

After the conversation the man briskly walked away to join in the ceremony. But now, the family want to try and find the mystery man to say thank you.

We've been everywhere to find this gentleman and we'd like anybody that knows him to come forward

– Lorraine Wood, Kaylen's grandmother
