A man has made an emotional appeal for thieves to return his father’s war medals, after they were stolen from a train.
The 64-year-old was returning from his father’s funeral on the 11.17am train between Birmingham New Street and Exeter St Davids on 14 June.
He left his bag, which contained the medals, on the luggage rack but found it missing when he exited the train at Exeter.
The medals were won by the victim’s father (pictured) between 1945 and 1948.
I inherited these medals from my father’s estate only a couple of weeks ago.
When I discovered these medals were missing, I felt a complete sense of loss and disappointment.
It upsets me that someone is in possession of those medals, who has no idea what my father went through to earn them.
