Stolen First World War medals Stolen First World War medals

First World War medals are among the items reported stolen in a burglary at a house in Tunbridge Wells.

It was reported that entry to the property in Parkwood Close - between 3.30pm and 9.50pm on Saturday, September 9 - was gained via smashing the kitchen window, and that various electrical items, jewellery and cash were stolen from within.

The two missing war medals had ‘Pte A J Benham’ and ‘G/95374 Middlesex Regiment’ inscribed on them.

Investigating officer detective constable Jerry Chapman said: “I am very keen to track down the person responsible for this incident, but also to reunite the victim with the medals earned by her late grandfather that are of high sentimental value.

“Anyone with information or who is asked to purchase one of these medals is asked to please contact us by calling the appeal number on 01622 604100 or by emailing quoting reference YY/25890/17.

“If you would prefer to remain anonymous you can call Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
