Return his Victoria Cross

#1
Found the story below while signing the petition for heroes
Petition for Heroes

Tul bahadar Pun an elderly gentleman who served in the British army as a Gurkha for some 22 years has recently been granted permission to live his remaining years out in this Country, unfortunately the Victoria Cross he won during one of his many battles was taken from him for so called safety (a pitiful amount of money was given to him for the medal)and placed on show in a museum. He recently visited this museum to see his medal but was denied the oppertunity to hold this small thing which means so much to him. So I call on every decent British citizen to sign this petition and get the prime minister to use his authoriy and get this hero his medal back.

Return his VC

How does someone take a medal off of someone who has earned it? What possible grounds (legally and morally) could they have for doing so?

Not inflammatory, genuinely curious.

They didn't "take" it off of him, they offered him money for it which he accepted. That's called "buying" and whilst it may be distasteful it is by no means "taking". For my money I would be quite happy to see the sale of medals made illegal.
