    i think its a given that it is on a ship to china by now,the price of scrap metal has gone off the scale in the uk,only thing is the thieves have know idea of the emotional attachment decent people have to memorials like this one.
    i am not involved with the museum,i have visited twice and also log on to the website every week,as i do with most mossy websites,all publicity i think will serve to keep the theft fresh in peoples minds

    In Hungary too, alot of memorials to events and famous people have been stripped of their metal recently, most notably from graves. There are alot of poor people here, and the smelters don't ask questions...

    Wow, I can't believe people would show such a lack of respect for history that way. I hope you recover the prop.

    Blame it on MethHeads and the Chinese. They are doing the same thing here. Just a week ago, they stole all the wiring for the lights along 4 miles!! of freeway. Apparently they didn't even attempt to hide their activity. They showed up on trucks, lights flashing and wearing hi-viz vests like a road worker. Dis gusting.

    We had a problem here in town of people stealing headstones and urns from the graveyards, thank god the recycling place these crackheads took them to knew what they were and just kept letting them bring em in. the whole time they were doing this someone was getting pics of these dirtbags. It went on for about 2 weeks then the cops arrested all 48 of them!
