#AudioMo - Day 8 - No Way To Treat a Veteran

Jun 09, 2014, 08:10 PM, Barnet, Greater London, England

After spending a few days last week paying respect to Veteran’s during the commemoration of D-Day, it’s sad that I have heard this story today.

A 92-year-old war veteran had his medals stolen in a distraction burglary on the 70th anniversary of D-Day.

Eleven medals were taken from the man's home in Whetstone, Barnet, north London. The victim served in the Grenadier Guards during World War Two, mainly in Italy and North Africa.

Original recording from BBC London website.
