A despicable act!

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.


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!

Can we bring back flogging yet?

Not what I'd dignify with the term 'alarm', but hey. How about 'access log'?

Stunning incompetence by our Army, thousands of dead diggers rotating in graves as I type.
Shameful theft, shameful incompetence.

Loathsome scrotes.
Perhaps a little session out Black Bush with a few SAS?

Oneof the stolen VCs was won by Sgt Keith Elliot (22 Batn). This was my Dad's Batallion. My dad is 84 and is genuinely upset about this theft. Given that it will be almsot impossible to sell these for any real money, I tend to think activists are to blame as well. Either way, I hope that the bastards are caught. They stole our family silver.

Tame looking to pay his legal bill perhaps? Don't forget his part in the stolen DOC painting.

I didn't realise that the Poms owned Upham's VC and we have it on loan.

The authorities should offer a substantial reward for info leading to the arrest of those guilty of this obscene crime.

There's no love lost among thieves.
