Charles Upham's Victoria Cross and bar is among prestigious military medals stolen from the Waiouru Army Museum.
Nine Victoria Crosses, two George Crosses and other medals were stolen in the theft early today.
Museum staff discovered that several displays had been broken into, after the alarm was activated in an annex to the building sometime between midnight and 6am.Link: http://www.stuff.co.nz/4306566a10.html
I'm going to take a guess that this is going to turn out to be a theft by activists. This property is too hot and too specialised to sell.
Any penalty on the books is not enough for these lowfife scum- whatever the reason!
