To all Forumites.
Please keep an eye an out for the following;

World War 1 pair to 201008 Pte. Joseph Henry Lee, 1/4th Btn. Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry.

Short story, these along with a 2nd War group to a Spr Critchell [still in named postal box] were stolen during a break in at my Mother-in-laws house in Southampton recently. The house was empty as said mum-in-law has had to go into long term care, and we were in the process of clearing the house. It was obviously an opportunistic thief, as he left behind the Memorial plaque and scroll which was in the same drawer.

Spr. Critchell was my wifes Grandfather, Pte. Lee was my wife's great grandfathers brother, so personal to us.
Fortunately, I recently researched Joseph Lee, and prepared a small folder on him, which the thief also left behind.

Thank's in advance for ANY information.
Toby

sorry to hear of this Toby.

As I subscribe to Medal News I will ask them to circulate the details in the next publication, if its not already been done

It’s worth setting up a search on eBay as well to notify if they turn up there for sale

Fingers crossed you get them back

You could also join the British medal forum online and put something there  .

Already done, on both suggestions. But thanks for the thought.

Toby, any Southampton dealers or shops worth approaching?

(Do the police send lists of stolen items to shops?)
