RM afgan medals stolen

#1
From Paul at BMF


I have today been contacted by the investigating officer in the MOD police with regards 30 but possibly 60 stolen OSM's clasp "Afghanistan" stolen from the Royal Marines. Phil has also published an excellent article in Medal News with the names.
If anyone knows or thinks they know of the whereabouts of any of the medals please contact DC Debbie Kirby on
deborah.corby192@mdpga.mod.uk

This is an opportunity for us to put medals back on chests were they belong. I would be happy for members to cut and paste this and post on as many web sites as possible I am not hopeful but lets see what we can do before the 11 November.

Keep your eyes peeled chaps.

Sincerely hope they are retrieved. If not, will the recipients receive another medal with 'replacement' marked on it i wonder. Seems unfair if they do.

These medals were stolen from the barracks and the final total may be close to 60 they are most likely either in collections waiting to be sold or in shops etc, I have been told that most likely they are in the midlands, any sighting of a boxed OSM to the booties, please contact Debbie or me, thanks again

Some absoulte bar steward had away my medals when they were in our Tailors' Shop. I only wish I could find out who did it, as I now have 'R' marked replacements.

I posted on two medal collecting Yahoo groups- may be worth a try?

Post on E-Bay, if you put all names etc, that does block a route of sale.

On the other hand, it may discourage people from listing them. eBay may well be a good way to track them down?

I was reliably informed many moons ago that it will only have replacement on the medal if it has been issued and then lost, stolen etc. If it has been misplaced before issue to the soldier it will still appear as original issue.
