Troops from Abingdon based 4 Logistic Support Regiment are to receive service medals today for their time in Afghanistan.
They returned to Dalton Barracks in Oxfordshire last month and were seen marching through Abingdon earlier this week.
The 217 medals will be presented by His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester. The duties of 4 Logistic Support Regiment were to ensure that the forward operating and patrol bases on the front line were supplied with water, medical supplies, and ammunition.
His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester is presenting Operational Service Medals for Afghanistan to 4 Medical Regiment in Aldershot this morning.
The medals parade is being held at Normandy Barracks.
The police are trying to trace the owner of three medals. The World War I honours have a name engraved on them. They were seized in March this year.
PC Sian Lewis from Thames Valley Police said “Unfortunately, we have no records of where these medals may have been taken from or who they belong to.
“I am keen to give them back to their rightful owner and am appealing for anyone who believes they could be their medals to contact me.”
Anyone with information should contact the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101 and ask to speak to PC Lewis at Newbury police station.
War medals and £200 cash have been stolen from a couple's home on Canterbury. The medals include one for service in Malaya in the 1950s and two for service in South Africa. Kent Police say the couple in their 80s were distracted when a man claiming to be from the water board called at the door.
Kent man Alfred Austin is asking for the public's help to find whoever broke into his home whilst he was asleep, and stole his war medals. The medals have now been found but he's still furious at whoever committed the crime.
