War medal stolen in Nottingham burglary

Police are appealing for help in tracking down a priceless war medal which was stolen during a burglary last week.

Engraved with the words PT Gregory 33055699, the black issue medal also contains an image of The Queen on the front.

The Afghanistan tour medal was taken, along with a number of items, including jewellery, during a burglary in Highbury Walk, Bulwell, on Wednesday 12 January, between 4.30pm and 6.30pm.

Investigator Samantha Fowler, of Nottinghamshire Police’s city burglary team, said: “For obvious reasons, this medal has huge sentimental value to the family affected.

“If you’ve seen this priceless item for sale, either online or in person, or have any more information that could help us track it down, we’d ask that you please get in touch with us.”
