The plaques, which weigh 40kg (88lb) each, were taken over two nights from a memorial on Plymouth Hoe to members of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. Peter Francis, of the War Graves Commission, said: âOne can only imagine the pain this is causing to the relatives of the men in Plymouth.â Although the missing plaques are worth only around Â£200 each in scrap value they will cost more than Â£2,000 each to replace. " The plaques were later found, five men were arrested and bailed. Makes me want to spit, absolute fcuking lowlifes, defacing a war memorial, insulting the memories of the fallen, for a couple of hundred quid. At least the thieves are back out in society, where vengeful families etc can get at them.
