The owner of a rare Second World War jeep stolen while it was on show at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford says he's been left devastated as it belonged to his father.
The American Marine used it while he was stationed at Pearl Harbour during the war.
It was being displayed as part of a classic vehicle event when it was taken on Sunday.
The 73-year-old owner, who doesn't want to be named, says it has 'great sentimental value' and just wants it back.
"It is extremely upsetting to lose the Jeep because it held such fond memories of my father.
"These Jeeps were built to last no longer than a week, or one tank of fuel. Soldiers even had printed instructions on how to destroy them quickly to prevent them falling into enemy hands.”
