    I be happy to list the medals stolen on the Lost or Stolen page on http://WWW.britishmedallocator.com I will need some info about the medals, ie; recipiant name, service number etc as shown on medals and also a Police crime referance.
    Please have a look at the site at other listings to see what is required, if all you have is the name of medal and recipient name that will do.
