Mother wrote to Base Records, 20 October 1920: 'I wish to state that his Father is still alive as far as I know but that I have been separated from him, and neither I nor the children have heard from him or had any maintenance from him for at least twenty-three years. Also that I have had to bring up & educate my children without any help except that of my late son, and consider that I have a prior right to any medals etc, belonging to him.' Base Records ruled, 3 November 1920, that she should receive his medals.His sister, Mrs K. Fuggle, of Morisset, New South Wales, wrote to 2nd Military District, 25 March 1923, asking if she could acquire the wooden cross used temporarily to mark McGlashan's grave, and also asking for 'any books on magnetism or hypnotism by H. Sutta-Suddahana'.
