Albert Medal Missing

Posted on Fri, 12 June 2020 by Phil Mussell - Medal News

C/MX65180 Sick Berth Attendant George William Beeching was posthumously awarded the Albert Medal in gold in April 1943 for gallantry when HMS Ibis was sunk in November 1942.   The medal was stolen back in January 1993 when on display in a museum in London and his sister is very keen to have it back!  The Metropolitan Police Arts and Antiquities crime reference number is 1998/3249 and any information would be most welcome.
