According to press reports the Victoria Cross of L/Sgt Thomas Neely VC MM of the King's Own (Royal Lancaster Regt.) was stolen, along with the MM and his campaign medals, from the Cheshire home of his Great-Nephew Phil Jones on Sunday (June 27). Apparently Mr Jones had only had the Cross for a couple of weeks having been recently given it by his father.

Needless to say such a treasure will not be easy to sell within the medal world but collectors should keep their eyes open just in case.
