A Forces Online original - Plea from South Wales Police. Please share far and wide. (use post from my profile if you have sharing issues).
Thanks for getting back to me. I am currently investigating a distraction burglary that occurred on the 17th May in the Ynystawe area of Swansea. The victims in this matter are an elderly couple (95 years old). The elderly gentleman isn’t a veteran himself but both his father and grandfather served with the armed forces and received medals which are of great sentimental value to the family. I’m sure you can appreciate the elderly gentleman lacks full mental capacity and his descriptions and memory of the medals are limited.
1 x unknown war medal belonging to the victim’s grandfather Evan Morgan from the Boer War
2 x unknown medals belonging to the victim’s father Ivor Morgan from the 1st Word War he served in Burma and France and it is believed his staff number was 725758.
Could anyone with information please contact the South Wales Police switchboard on 101 and quote incident number 1900176911.
Anything you can do to assist the family would be greatly appreciated.
