Beaten up War Hero to be featured on Crimewatch tonight

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by BarkingSpider, Feb 26, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. BBC webpage
    I'm not sure if this is in the appropriate forum, if so, my apologies and mods please move is this is the case.

    Remember this fellow?


    We all booked out the outrage bus when Bob Schofield was badly beaten during a robbery at his home back in November last year.
    He served in the Andrew during WW2 and was on board an escort ship as part of the North Atlantic (Arctic) convoys, a test of a mans mettle if ever there was one.
    Read what his son writes about him:

    His case is being featured on Crimewatch tonight and I would ask that any happening to flick over to BBC1 at 21.00 tonight might want to stay and watch the reconstruction and appeal. You never know.
    I'm not going to preach to you guys but I think Bob and his wife Mollie deserve our support and to at least take a look, we owe them that much at least.
    ARRSE has enough members to maybe have someone who knows something about this and if it helps jog a memory then it will be worth posting it here.
    Thanks for your time. I'll stop dusting now as its getting in my eyes. :D
  2. Just the one bump to keep this on the front page before Crimewatch tonight.

    And to say that if you can't watch Crimewatch tonight then it will be available on BBC IPlayer later:

    BBC I Player
  3. Bump, because I can not watch it as I am in Germany
  4. Well, I hope for one if there is someone out there who does know the Shiyte that did this bubble them to the Cops or PM me their names and addresses, I'll happily arrange to have their doors kicked in.
