The details of these stolen medals will be known by all auction houses and dealers so the thief will never be able to dispose of them for anythin approaching their true financial value.
He will never be able to pass them on to other family members either, as inevitably, their identity and the fact they were stolen will be discovered, revealing the identity of the thief.
Let's hope that after a short while, the novelty of having them in his very private collection wears off and he does the right thing and returns these very important historical artefacts.
If only he could see the irony in that the men who earned these medals are men deserving of the highest levels of respect, yet he is just a thief deserving of nothing other than a jail sentence.
Let's hope this scumball sees some sense and does the right thing, before the knock on the door.

Totally agree, let's hope he try's to sell them, and the buyer calls the police.

Hi rayhun

I'm not sure about Parry, but at least 6 private's from the 1/24th did survive and their accounts are at the Museum in Breacon.
