Police need the public’s help to help find original wartime medals stolen from the D-Day Museum in Southsea. A burglary took place at the museum on Clarence Esplanade between 3pm and 4pm on Thursday, May 2, 2013.
The covers of two displays inside the museum were unscrewed, and the medals were stolen. An alarm alerted staff that the theft was taking place. Their whereabouts remain unknown.
Andrew Whitmarsh, D-Day Museum Development Officer said: “These medals are an important part of the D-Day Museum’s displays, and we use them to help tell the story of wartime events. They are part of the history of the wartime air raids on Portsmouth and the D-Day landings respectively."
A 37-year-old man from Portsmouth was arrested on suspicion of theft and bailed until May 22, 2013 pending further enquiries.
