This just in from CJ and AJ Dixon of Bridlington

Sadly the following medals have been stolen from the bereaved family home of the late Cpl. I.F. Spencer. They are believed to have gone missing sometime between the end of Nov and 4th Dec from their home in the Birmingham area.

The medals in question are both named to Cpl. I.F. Spencer, Royal Marines.

C.S.M. (Northern Ireland) & South Atlantic Medal

Cpl. I.F. Spencer was sadly killed in the Falklands War and as you will imagine these medals are of great value to his family. If you are offered them or are aware of them being offered elsewhere then please contact us immediately and we will pass on the information to the family and the police. Please quote reference number 30603 if you contact us. Let us hope that we can track down these medals to be returned to the family who lost their son fighting for his country.

Also missing are two medals stolen during a burglary at the home of the recipient in Nayland, Colchester, earlier this week. Hadleigh Police Station are dealing with this incident and the crime number is HD/07/2144.

G.S.M. clasps South Arabia & Northern Ireland inscribed Lieut. A.G. Gowen Royal Marines

South Atlantic Medal with Rosette inscribed Major A.G. Gowen Royal Marines
