stolen colection of WWI peace medals


Recommended Posts

Dear all possibly the sort of thing that might find its way on E-Bay

At approximately 4.45pm on Thursday 9 August a collection of over 600 WWI peace commemorative medal and badges were stolen form the Malmesbury area in Wiltshire. The items were in gold, silver, bronze, aluminium and paper. All items were associated with the peace celebrations of 1919 in Britiain, the Commonwealth and allied countires and also included Masonic commemoratives.

Any information phone DC Garry Epps (Wiltshire Police) (0044(0)1225 794739 (Crime number 54120070860)

All the best,

Paul

Hi Paul

Sorry to hear about the theft, I also collect the 1919 Peace medals, so I will keep my eye open for any unusual numbers of these appearing for sale.

I will also send the info in your post to my usual sources in case they get offered any or hear of anything.

Paul - thankyou for posting this distressing loss - with so many involved it is a serious theft.

May I suggest that in addition to here you add the post to the Stolen section on the For Sale section.

Not everyone reads the British Forums. Mervyn

Thanks Mervyn,

Lazy as ever,

Paul

Many thanks Mike. I normally am not so bothered about many thefts reported as most are untracable but my gut feeling is that something as unusual will ring alarm bells if such material turns up in large quantities.

I am afraid I have problems coming to terms with the technologies of late 19th century let alone with late 20th century/21st century.

This is rotten.

I would contact the Antiques Trade Gazette and inform them. These medals may be dispersed throughout the country to auction houses and they have a stolen items section. Go to their website

Also, try their online auction search engine at the-saleroom.com

Hope they're found and the ******** caught.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
