Military cap badges

It was the medals thread that brought this back to me

I was once a long time ago, the messman in the PO's Mess on HMS FEARLESS
I was given the cap badge board,which contained every cap badge of every British Army unit
I took it home on leave and it was in proud place in my parents home mounted on red baize

Many years later after my father had died (I visited monthly)I returned to visit mother and the board had gone

Every Army cap badge mounted on a large red velvet board had gone, a nice man had given my mother (aged 74)a carton of Embassy Regal Ciggarettes £40 cash for the Beckstein piano and a bottle of wine for the Oil Painting in the Hall, I spoke to the Police but they said, as she had willingly sold them nothing could be done

I know the "reputable" company , the "buyer" and one day he will meet his just deserts

I still posses my and my fathers medals, which I hope will stay in my family unless they get a "good price for them"

I truly believe a VC winner would prefer his family to have half a million quid and live life, than struggle and have a bit of bronze hanging on the wall IMHO
I only wish again IMHO thieves should be shot
