"Police are appealing for help in locating a medal given to the victim’s relative in the first world war."

" It is believed that a citation for the awarding of the medal, in a rolled cardboard tube, was also taken and is likely to be kept with the medal to increase its value. "

"also took a cloth-faced ‘paybook’ issued to Captain Layfield and dated to the same period. "

"Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting incident number 536 of 4 October 2013 - "

Another example if mindless morons breaking into decent people's homes, I hope they catch the scum bag(s)!

The MC awarded to Wilfred Owen is still missing so the chance of this latest theft turning up is sadly remote to say the least.

Somebody no doubt gloating over both these medals hidden in their abode for self gratification, where's the point in that when you dare not share your "collection" with anyone. Stealing famous paintings and hiding them away is another example of the weirdoes in this world. Very odd.

Sadly more likely down the nearest pawnbrokers, junk shop or jewellers for quick cash for whatever fix it is the lowlives require.

That's a Second World War MC in the picture - although they do admit 'like this picture', so it's not the Cross in question.
