Nine VCs stolen in New Zealand

In a well executed raid on the Waioru Army Museum early on Sunday December 2 2007 a number of important medal groups - including nine Victoria Crosses, Charles Upham's VC and bar amongst them, were stolen.

Two George Medal's, an Albert Medal and an unspecified number of other groups were also among the awards to vanish.

Sadly it is unlikely these medals will surface on the open market so telling readers to "look out" for them is a tad pointless, all we can really do is hope that the perpetrators of what seems to be a planned "to order" theft are swiftly caught and shot - or at least brought to some form of justice.
